Caribbean Black-bottomed Key Lime Pie
I scrape out the oreo cookies and use those for the cookies. Or you can buy the chocolate wafer cookies and use those.
When I was short on time or had a broken food processor, I used the store bought ready made chocolate crust. The pie still came out good, but not as good as the home made crust.
