Making a cookie crumb pie crust is easier than you think but you need to make sure the crumbs are not overly soggy with butter or egg white. Generally this recipe can be used for graham cracker crumbs, teddy graham crumbs, oreo crumbs, and nilla wafer crumbs but keep in mind because each cookie is unique you may need more or less butter (usually less). Start by adding less butter then adding more if you need it.

Egg white 3/4 Ounce (fresh or carton)
