Elsie's notes for this recipe:
We received some sugar cookies at Christmas that were very hard. Not wanting to waste them, I pulverized them in my food processor to make crumbs for a crumb crust.

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 350.
2
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.
5
Slice bananas and place slices over crumbs in pan.
6
Make Cheesecake according to package directions and spread over bananas. May top with cool whip or whipped cream, if desired. Chill.
7
NOTE: Package directions call for 2 3/4 cups milk, but another time I would use less for a firmer cheesecake.
