Pumpkin Graham Cracker Crust Pie

Most years, if I make pumpkin pie at all, it's just the pudding part, no crust.  This year, we were craving pumpkin pie and I didn't want a regular flour crust.  So given the Costco sized boxes of graham crackers in the cupboard, I decided to mash a bag up in a ziplock bag and add in sugar and butter to create a graham cracker crust.  I baked the crust for about 7min on a lower temp. before pouring the pumpkin filing in.  The hubby stamped this with his approval, by eating it VERY quickly.

If I were to make improvements, it would be to cook it for a little less time so that the edges of the crackers were not quite as dark and to half the amount of sugar.
