I followed the advice of a previous reviewer and added 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/4 cup sugar to cookie crumbs and pressed them into the pan and baked for just a bit while I mixed up the filling. The gingersnap crust adds just the right amount of spice to these bars. They are a great fall cheesecake.
