Great flavor addition to pies such as custard, sweet potato, yam, pumpkin or carrot. Not a flaky crust, this turns out more crisp the first day of serving and softens as time allows. I've paired this recipe with my Sweet Carrot Pecan Pie and had very delicious results-- Enjoy!

  3. Place gingersnap cookies into a ziploc bag and using a rolling pin, crush cookies until they are a fine crumb consistency.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine the Gingersnap cookie crumbs with your finely chopped pecans and sugar, stirring with a spoon until they appear blended evenly. Melt remaining unused butter. Combine with pecan/ gingersnap mixture.
