1 1/2- 2 cups crushed cookie crumbs (most recipes call for 2 cups)
Up to 6 TBS Butter- melted
Up to 1/4 cup Sugar
*Opt: up to 1 tsp cinnamon

No chips or frosting or anything that will melt!
Scrape cream filling out of sandwich cookies
On any cookie that is high in butter content (butter cookies) you may need less butter
Cookies w/ nuts or seeds are fine they don't melt

Crush cookies in food processor (If you don't have food processor put in zip lock bag let air outta bag and hit it w/ hammer or other hard object but becareful not to hit it too hard and break bag!)

Put crumbs in bowl

If adding opt. cinnamon add it to crumbs

Add melted butter 1 TBS at a time until mix forms a ball w/out falling apart

Taste and add sugar 1 TBS at a time until it tastes good to you

Press on bottom and sides of pie pan

Add filling after it cools

* NOTE: I found it easier to use the bottom and sides of a non decorated plain glass to form crust in pie pan. Don't push too hard and break glass!!! O.O

At 1st I just thought there was only graham cracker and oreo cookie crusts. But after googling and experimenting I found that almost any crisp cookie will work! :)
