If you are using Oreos it takes about 16 cookies to make 1.5 cups of crumbs

This tasted good but I used real butter and they came out extremely greasy--I used cupcake liners and the pans and the liners were soaked in a puddle of grease. Maybe margarine would have worked better?

I used chocolate graham crackers and this turned out very good. I decided to bake it (375 for 7 minutes) just to ensure that the crust would stay together since I didn't think refrigeration would hold it together when serving. However I didn't spray the pie pan thus the crust stuck to the bottom. I plan to try it again still baking it but making sure I prepare the pan before hand so that the crust will come out easily.

This makes a really good chocolate crust. Be sure to use the big dark chocolate wafers that are cello-wrapped on top with their bottoms in a yellow box (I think they're Nabisco). They really put this recipe over the top.

I used Oreos to make this crust. It was quite simple to make--- as easy as buying a crust at the grocery store--- and tasted yummy too!

I made this with a peanut butter pie. it was perfect. I used reduced-fat nabsico chocolate wafers. Mmmm so good. I liked the crust better than the pie and the pie was GOOD. (Note: it's about 50 wafers)

This was really tasty I used the Nabisco chocolate wafers and it turned out great. However I dropped one star because it sticks alot to thje pie plate would wokr out better if used in a tin or a disposable pie tin don't uyse in a deep dish plate like I did. Also could be improved be a couple of tablespoons of sugar.

I cannot find chocolate wafers around here so I also used chocolate graham crackers. I do not bake my crust. I use it for peanut butter pie and it is so yummy and delicious!

This is EXACTLY what I needed for the Creamy Peanut Butter Pie I also found on this site. I didn't want to spend two bucks on a pre-made crumb crust when I could make one at home. I used Mother's Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies for this and ground them in my blender as I don't have a food processor. Worked like a charm! Only issue I had was when I added the melted butter it seemed really too wet so I had to grind up another six cookies to soak up the moisture. Wasn't a huge deal. I stuck this in my freezer for about a half hour to hurry-firm it so I could make the rest of the pie.
