The Steps:

First, place all your Grace’s Best Cookies into a large, clear plastic bag. Make sure it’s sealed nice and tight.

Next comes the fun part: take a rolling pin and start smashing! This is where your kids will come in handy. We can’t guarantee there won’t be a mess, however. It all depends on how your littles take you up on this task.

Once the cookies have been crushed into crumbs, dump them in a bowl and stir in the melted butter until the mixture is consistent.

Place the mixture into a pie pan, press down until the crust in covering the bottom and the sides, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
