Cookie-Crumb Crust

5 ounces Nabisco Barnum's Animal Crackers or Social Tea Biscuits
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter , melted and kept warm

FOR THE CRUST:
  1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In food processor, process cookies to fine, even crumbs, about 30 seconds (you should have about 1 cup).
  3. Add sugar and pulse 2 or 3 times to incorporate.
  4. Add warm melted butter in slow, steady stream while pulsing; pulse until mixture is evenly moistened and resembles wet sand, about ten 1-second pulses.
  5. Transfer mixture to 9-inch springform pan; using bottom of ramekin or dry measuring cup, press firmly and evenly into pan bottom, keeping sides as clean as possible.
  6. Bake until fragrant and golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes.
  7. Cool on wire rack to room temperature, about 30 minutes.
  8. When cool, wrap outside of pan with two 18-inch square pieces heavy-duty foil; set springform pan in roasting pan.
