Crumb crusts are often used with cheesecake pies, such as Bananas Foster Cheese Pie, as well as with cream or chiffon pies.

  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Mix cookie crumbs and sugar in medium bowl.
  4. Drizzle butter over crumbs while stirring and tossing with fork until evenly moistened.
  5. Press crumb mixture evenly and firmly against bottom and sides of 9-inch pie plate.
  6. Bake in 350 degree F oven until center is firm to the touch and edge is lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
  7. Cool completely on wire rack.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

If edge of crust starts to get too dark, wrap a band of aluminum foil around the pie plate, crimping lightly around rim to shield edge from the heat.
