Ingredients

12 crispy chocolate chip cookies, store-bought or homemade and overbaked (see Cook's Note)

1 tablespoon dark brown sugar 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

1 tablespoon butter, melted 

Directions

  1. Put the cookies in a food processor and pulse until finely ground; transfer to a bowl. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon and mix to combine. Pour in the melted butter and stir until the cookies are evenly coated with the butter.
  2. Press the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate to form a pie crust, making sure that all surfaces are even. If you're making a no-bake pie, bake the crust before adding the filling: Bake at 375 degrees F until the crust is dry, about 10 minutes; the time will vary depending on how crispy the cookies are. If the pie you are preparing is baked, do not pre-cook the crust. Add the filling and cook the pie according to the recipe instructions.

Cook’s Note

This is a great opportunity to make use of overbaked, not-so-perfect cookies.
