A rich buttery crust that's perfect for just about any sort of filling. It's perfect for cheesecakes. You may substitute chocolate cookie crumbs for a chocolate crust.

Taste was okay with following the recipe exact; however it was greasy and yet somehow rock hard at the same time. Nearly couldn t get extremely sharp knife through it. Will not be making this recipe again.

I make this one all the time. With one change I do not add the cinnamon. I have found that I do not particularly likes spies in pie crust(as in graham cracker crust).

This crust is SO good! I used it for key lime pie and I will NEVER use graham cracker crust again! However I do think there's a bit too much butter in this recipe... it made the crust a little greasy and when it cooled it was kind of hard like candy. I will DEFINITELY make this again but I'm going to try it with less butter to see what happens.

This is a tasty and easy crust. I used it for banana cream pie and it was wonderful. I added some chopped macadamia nuts (I got this from a favorite restaurants banana pie) and omited the cinnamon. It was wonderfully crispy and the nuts added a crunch. Yummy!

A nice change from graham cracker crust. It held together nicely for my French Silk pie. My daughter had a blast crushing the cookies (enclosed in a heavy duty zip lock bag) with a rolling pin. Thanks for sharing Nona.

This worked out well and was easy to make. The cinnamon was not good because I used it with chocolate pie filling. Also mine turned out a little wet after the filling sat in the pie shell for 2 days. Not sure if that was normal or if it was just the filling I used.

Love this crust.I have never been a big fan of graham crackers so this crust is the perfect alternative. Made this with key lime pie VII for a simple delicious desert. Thanks for the recipe
