Preheat the oven to 350°F and butter a 9×9 baking dish. In a medium bowl, stir the graham cracker crumbs, the melted butter, the sugar and the lemon zest until the graham crumbs are moist. Press the crumbs firmly in the baking dish and slightly on the sides. Bake this crust for 10 minutes, then let cool to room temperature.
