Butter Cookie Crust

Recipe from


2 1/2 cups butter cookie crumbs (about 1 1/2 [7.25-oz.] packages)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup melted butter


Stir together all ingredients; firmly press crumb mixture on bottom, up sides, and onto lip of a lightly greased 9-inch pieplate. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack, and cool crust 1 hour or until completely cool before filling.

Note: For testing purposes, we used Pepperidge Farm Chessmen Cookies for butter cookies.
