1 1/2 cups
chocolate cookie crumbs
If you are using Oreos, it takes about 16 cookies to make 1.5 cups of crumbs
I used 25 oreos, and I put them in the food processor to make them almost as fine as dust! I used 6 Tbsp butter, and cooked the crust at 375 for 10 minutes. (my pie is a no-bake pie, so I had to cook the crust first).
I used chocolate graham crackers and this turned out very good. I decided to bake it (375 for 7 minutes) just to ensure that the crust would stay together since I didn't think refrigeration would hold it together when serving. However, I didn't spray the pie pan, thus the crust stuck to the bottom. I plan to try it again, still baking it, but making sure I prepare the pan before hand so that the crust will come out easily.
I used Oreos to make this crust. It was quite simple to make--- as easy as buying a crust at the grocery store--- and tasted yummy, too!
This makes a really good chocolate crust. Be sure to use the big dark chocolate wafers that are cello-wrapped on top with their bottoms in a yellow box (I think they're Nabisco). They really put this recipe over the top.
I made this with a peanut butter pie. it was perfect. I used reduced-fat nabsico chocolate wafers. Mmmm, so good. I liked the crust better than the pie, and the pie was GOOD. (Note: it's about 50 wafers)
great for cheesecake
This was really tasty, I used the Nabisco chocolate wafers and it turned out great. However, I dropped one star because it sticks alot to thje pie plate, would wokr out better if used in a tin or a disposable pie tin, don't uyse in a deep dish plate like I did. Also, could be improved be a couple of tablespoons of sugar.
