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.
Make it Your Way...

Preheat oven to 350.
Melt butter in microwave. (I did 30 seconds and then 30 more seconds.)
Combine cookie crumbs and butter and press into the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking dish or pan.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Cool.
Slice bananas and place slices over crumbs in pan.
Make Cheesecake according to package directions and spread over bananas. May top with cool whip or whipped cream, if desired. Chill.
NOTE: Package directions call for 2 3/4 cups milk, but another time I would use less for a firmer cheesecake.
