Cookie Crumb Crust for a pie

You can make a crumb crust for a pie out of many kinds of cookies.  This week I made one out of crushed Oreos in honor of that cookie's 100th birthday. 
Cookie Crumb Crust
1 1/2 to 2 cups of finely crushed cookies (Oreos, vanilla wafers, chocolate cookies)
2 Tablespoons melted butter (if you use cream filled cookies)
4 Tablespoons melted butter (if you have other cookies)

Crush the cookies and stir in the melted butter.  Press the crumbs into a 9" pie pan.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes.  Cool.  Fill as desired. 

Tiffany's Notes: I used  about 1 1/2 cups of crumbs and could have used a bit more.  With cookies you don't add any sugar like you do with a Graham Cracker Crust.  Hum...what did this pie crust get filled with?  Check back to see.  :)
