1
Preheat oven to 350.

Melt butter in microwave. (I did 30 seconds and then 30 more seconds.)
3
Combine cookie crumbs and butter and press into the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish or pan.
4
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Cool.

NOTE: Package directions call for 2 3/4 cups milk, but another time I would use less for a firmer cheesecake.
