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)


18       teaspoon salt


6          tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F.


Place the crumbs, sugar and salt in the Cuisinart™ mixing bowl. Insert the flat mixing paddle. Turn to speed 1. While mixing, slowly add melted butter and mix until crumbs are totally coated. 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.


Place in preheated 350°F oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before using.
