  1. Sweet or savoury biscuits (plain, without fillings)
  2. Melted butter (amount will depend on how many biscuits you have)


  1. In a small saucepan or the microwave, melt the butter.
  2. Place the biscuits into a food processor or electric chopper and pulverize into crumbs.
  3. Measure 1½ cups of crumbs into a medium bowl.
  4. Add enough of the melted butter to moisten the crumbs but not make them wet.
  5. Stir or blend together with your hands.
  6. Press into the pie plate or other pan, or use as instructed in your recipe (sometimes only the crushed biscuits will be used without the melted butter, so follow your instructions).
  7. To pre-bake the pie crust, bake for 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated 180°C oven.
  8. Any leftover biscuits can be stored in a the fridge or frozen till required.
