"A rich buttery crust that's perfect for just about any sort of filling. It's perfect for cheesecakes. You may substitute chocolate cookie crumbs for a chocolate crust."

1 1/2 cups
finely crumbled vanilla wafers
I make this one all the time. With one change I do not add the cinnamon. I have found that I do not particularly likes spies in pie crust(as in graham cracker crust).
I cut back on the butter because others said it was greasy, but other than that, I followed the recipe. I wanted an easy crust for my kids to use with an almond pear tart. Well, it WAS easy, but the taste really took over the whole tart. I thought the crust was too sweet and too hard, and the cinnamon was quite strong. I don't think I'll use this again.
A good easy crumb crust. Make sure you make the crumbs fine enough. :&)
This crust is SO good! I used it for key lime pie and I will NEVER use graham cracker crust again! However, I do think there's a bit too much butter in this recipe... it made the crust a little greasy and when it cooled it was kind of hard like candy. I will DEFINATLY make this again but I'm going to try it with less butter to see what happens.
This is a tasty and easy crust. I used it for banana cream pie and it was wonderful. I added some chopped macadamia nuts (I got this from a favorite restaurants banana pie) and omited the cinnamon. It was wonderfully crispy and the nuts added a crunch. Yummy!
A nice change from graham cracker crust. It held together nicely for my French Silk pie. My daughter had a blast crushing the cookies (enclosed in a heavy duty zip lock bag) with a rolling pin. Thanks for sharing, Nona.
This worked out well and was easy to make. The cinnamon was not good because I used it with chocolate pie filling. Also mine turned out a little wet after the filling sat in the pie shell for 2 days. Not sure if that was normal or if it was just the filling I used.
I really like this crust! It compliments my oatmeal pie.
