Nice start to a good recipe. I used 40 cookies, 1/4 cup melted butter, and 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar. Combined everything in a food processor and pressed into a pie plate. Baked the crust at 350F for 9 minutes, let it cool stlightly and then filled it with my pie filling and baked the pie (I made Key Lime). Perfect!

I used this as the crust for a banana cream pie and ended up with a slightly soggy crust. Perhaps it would have worked better if I had baked the crust a little first.

I used this crust to change the banana pudding IV recipe here on allrecipes to a banana cream pie. I also added about 1/3 cup of powdered sugar and it was so good! We love the banana pudding recipe, but agreed that this time the crust was the best part. I've used the recipe again today to make strawberry pie-yum! So versatile!

I added 1/4 c sugar and used for a cheesecake. Very good.

I put a a bit of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves in to compliment a pumpkin cheescake. Very good.

Made this crust with "Joey's Cheesecake" from this site and the crust was wayyyy better than a graham cracker crust. Loved it!

Good change from the normal graham cracker crust. I used my food processor, and pulsed the crumbs, butter, some orange zest and a little cinnamon sugar. I baked at 350 for 10 minutes, cooled, and filled with a pudding/cool whip mixture. Yum!
