No-Bake Cookie Crust

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place cookie crumbs, sugar and nuts, if using, in a bowl and stir to mix.
  2. Add the melted butter and toss with a fork until evenly moistened​.
  3. Pour into a 9-inch pie pan.
  4. Using your fingertips, pat the mixture evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the pan, pressing gently to pack.

Tip: Work quickly while the butter is still warm and liquid; the crumbs will be much easier to manipulate.Once the butter chills and sets, its almost impossible to shape a smooth even crust.
