Cookie crusts are quick and easy to make, and far out-shine a store-bought crust. Purchase gingersnap cookies at your grocery store; put a few cookies in a large, heavy-duty resealable bag. (Leave a small opening in the top of the bag to allow air to escape.) Using a little pressure, roll a rolling pin over the plastic bag. Continue rolling the pin over the bag until the cookies are broken into fine crumbs.

Ingredients
Gingersnap Crust:
  • 1½ cups Gingersnap Cookie crumbs
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Gingersnap Crust:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine Gingersnap crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Stir until thoroughly mixed and mixture is crumbly.
  2. Pour the Gingersnap 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.
  4. The pie crust may be cooled completely on a wire cooling rack or used warm, according to the pie recipe.
