I use lemon flavored wafers for a crust and key lime pie filling for a topping. It makes a very nice combination. IMO key lime is an otherwise forgettable flavor, but I have ten cans of the stuff to use up.
For any other kind of cheese cake I use plain shortbread cookie crumbs, Keebler brand. Crush ten cookies, melt about six Tbsps of butter, and mix. No additional sugar. I am still guessing at how much butter to use. A whole stick is too much liquid and I have to chill it before I fill it.
ETA: Well duh! I just figured out what I did wrong. I was only supposed to use half
a stick of butter!
Hey, I'm smart, but I never claimed to be experienced!
