Help please!

Are Graham crackers the same as digestive biscuits? They seem to be used to make dessert crusts in the same way!

No, not exactly--but I could see them being used that way. I love graham crackers. I've had digestive biscuits brought to me from Canada by a friend; they're not graham crackers, they're  much smoother in texture and the color is completely different (I don't think there's a speck of graham flour in them). However, by the time you crush them and mix them with sugar and butter (which is how I make graham cracker crust) I could see them making a decent crust.

They generally aren't as sweet as Graham crackers (which started out life as a health biscuit) and have soda in them (hence the name). Most graham crusts are many with Honey Grahams (which don't have much graham wheat in them anymore), which are even sweeter.

for myself, I almost always use the Cinnamon Honey Grahams. If I'm gonna OD on sweet, I might as well have some spice in there with it. :-) (Plus, that goes really really well with pumpkin or sweet potato!)

Any kind of crisp cookie/biscuit should be a suitable substitute. Like ginger snaps, or tea biscuits or short bread.

Or you could also make a short crust of flour, sugar and butter, pinch of salt, a little flavor extract...etc.

Ooh, sweet potato pie in a cinnamon honey crust. Now *that* sounds mighty fine!

And then top it with spiced whipped cream.

Ja, I have this once a year, ONE PIECE and that's it. :-)

As far as I know, Graham crackers do not exist in the UK; however, when I've seen knowledgeable people discuss substitutions, the consistent "this is the closest you've got" has been digestive biscuits.

So I'll come down as "no and yes".
