6-inch pie crust without edges
1 box Simple Mills Crunchy Toasted Pecan Cookies
3 Tbsp Dairy-free butter, melted
9-inch pie crust with edges
1 ½ box Simple Mills Crunchy Double Chocolate Cookies
3 Tbsp Dairy-free butter, melted
9-inch pie crust, bottom only
1 box Simple Mills Crunchy Cinnamon Cookies
3 Tbsp Dairy-free butter, melted


PREHEAT oven to 350 F.
PULSE cookies of choice in a food processor until fine.  Use 1 box for a full 6-inch pie crust or a 9-inch bottom-only pie crust.  For a 9-inch pie crust with the edges, you’ll need 1 ½ boxes (approx. 3 cups of cookies).  You can also use a ziplock bag and break up the cookies with a rolling pin. 


ADD the melted butter and pulse again a few times until the mixture resembles wet sand. 


PRESS the cookie crumbs into a pie dish with the back of a measuring cup.  Use the measuring cup to push the crumbs along the walls of the pie dish if making a crust with edges.


BAKE the pie crust in the oven for 8 minutes.  Let cool before adding your favorite pie filling!
