Chocolate Nut Crust:
  • 1 cup Chocolate Cookie crumbs, finely ground (Use a cookie such as Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers, or the chocolate cookie portion of Oreo cookies)
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Chocolate Nut Crust:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine cookie crumbs, nuts, sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter. Stir until thoroughly mixed and mixture is crumbly.
  2. Pour the chocolate crumb mixture into a 9 inch pie pan. Using the back of a large spoon or the flat bottom of a measuring cup or drinking glass, press the crumb mixture firmly and evenly across the bottom and against the sides of the pie pan.
  3. Bake: Bake 10 minutes. The edges may be just slightly browned, but you do not want the edges or crust to over-brown. Remove from oven. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. The pie crust may be cooled completely on a wire cooling rack or used warm, according to the pie recipe.
