Cookie Crumb Pie Crust

Inspired to make a different type of pie crust for an amaretto cream pie, I decided to try and make a crumb crust using almond spice cookies. The result was delicious.

I have found that most crisp cookies work well in this basic, simple recipe.  I make either one deep dish pie or two standard dish 9-inch pies with this recipe.

For variations try chocolate wafer, sugar, almond, ginger snaps, pecan sandies, vanilla wafers, and graham crackers (of course).
