Instructions

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9" shallow pie dish and set aside. Place graham crackers into food processor and pulse until they resemble a bread crumbs or heavy sand consistency. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and whisk in cinnamon. Add applesauce and stir until large chunks of graham crackers form. Add more applesauce if necessary but be careful the mixture doesn't become too wet or soggy. Continue to stir until everything is evenly wet. Press mixture into the pie dish to form a crust along the base edges. Bake for 8 minutes, until just crisp and begining to brown. Transfer to a cooling wrack and allow to completely cool before using.
