A rich-tasting crust.

Top Review by internetnut

I gave this 5 stars. I made a oreo cookie crust using this recipe. I halved the recipe as I thought it would make to much and next time I will make the full recipe and use what I need. I forgot to add the salt and vanilla extract. I had to add 2 tbl. more butter to make the crust but I always have to when making homemade crusts. I also forgot to bake the crust. It still turned out. Thanks for posting a really good recipe. Christine (internetnut)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 30 chocolate wafers (Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers, to yield about 1 1/2 cups crumbs)
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 12 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Put the cookies in the container of a food processor; process them until they are finely ground.
  2. Transfer crumbs to a mixing bowl; combine crumbs, butter, salt, and vanilla; stir until the crumbs are moistened.
  3. Press mixture evenly across the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate and all the way up the sides of the pan; pack tightly so crust is even and compacted.
  4. Bake in a 350° oven for 6-8 minutes or until crisp.
  5. Let cool completely before filling.
  6. May wrap crust in plastic wrap and freeze for 1 month.
