We got together with several of our friends recently and made 18 pies in two hours – including the dishes! One of pies the group made was a pumpkin with chocolate crust. There were many steps to the pie filling and was not ‘simple,’ but the crust was easy. This is a great crust for you to fill with many types of fillings – pumpkin, chocolate mousse, peppermint cream, you name it!
- 8 oz. chocolate wafer cookies (33 cookies)
- One stick butter, melted
- 2 T sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees In a food processor, pulse the cookies until finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl and add the butter and sugar. Mix until well combined, then press into a 9-inch pie plate (using the back of a small measuring cup helps form a perfect crust). Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes, until set. Transfer to a rack and let cool prior to filling.
