Cookie Pie Crust by Sox

Serves:8 (one 9" crust or 4 small crusts)   Time: 15 minutes

1/2 stick unsalted butter
and one of the following options
a) 7 oz Nutter Butters cookies (1/2 package)

b) 7 oz oreo cookies (1/2 package)

c) 7 oz Ginger Snap cookies (1/2 package)
2 t sugar

d) 7 oz Nilla Wafers (1/2 package)
2 t sugar

Tools: Food Processor
Pie pan

1) Crumble cookies and either in a food processor or by beating on them (do not chew and spit out)
2) Melt butter and mix completely with the crumbs (and sugar if used)
3) Press crumbs down into a pie pan to about 1/8 inch or so. Start from the middle and mush it down so it goes up the sides to the top of the pan.
4) Bake at 350 for 10 minutes and place on a rack to cool. If the crust is puffed up in the middle, carefully push it down with your fingers or a spatula. Alternately you can use a second pie pan to push it down but be careful it doesn't stick.
