      I have made this versatile pie crust numerous of times of different cookies and also pretzels. And if melting the butter before adding, this makes a perfect no bake crust as well. Perfect every time!

      This crust was delicious! The texture was great; it held together well and had a good crunch without being too crispy. I used gluten free chocolate wafers, unsalted butter, and my Magic Bullet to crumb the cookies. I didn't have a shrinkage problem on the sides like others have mentioned, so I ended up with a really tall crust. I'll definitely make this again!

      I used this recipe for a pumpkin pie that had to be cooked an additional hour, and it turned out just fine. I was worried the crust would be overdone, but I just placed some foil over the edges to prevent the exposed crust from burning. I used MI-DEL gluten-free gingersnaps, and it was absolutely delicious.
