This basic cookie crumb crust can be made with crushed cookies or graham crackers. It can then be used for most pies that have a creamy or custard- based filling.

Cookie Crumb Crust
INGREDIENTS

8          ounces finely crushed cookie crumbs (gingersnaps, chocolate cookies, vanilla wafers or graham crackers)


2 to 3 tablespoons granulated sugar (to taste depending on cookies chosen)


1⁄8       teaspoon salt


6          tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F.


Put the crumbs, sugar and salt in the Cuisinart®  mixing bowl. Attach the flat mixing paddle. Mix on Speed 2 to combine, about 30 seconds. While mixing, slowly add melted butter and mix until crumbs are totally coated, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a pie plate and press evenly into bottom and up the sides of the plate. Use the bottom of a glass or custard cup to firmly tamp down the bottom of the crust. Bake until firm to the touch 8 to 10 minutes.


Remove from oven and cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
