Holiday Ginger Snap Crust Recipe

  • 1 1/2 cups crushed gingersnap cookies
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
  • 12 gingersnap cookies, or as needed
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Mix crushed gingersnap cookies, brown sugar, and butter together in a bowl until well-combined. Press gingersnap mixture into the bottom of a springform pan. Arrange whole gingersnap cookies upright around the border of the springform pan, pressing into the base so that they stand firmly.
