Hmmm. Sounds like lemon bars but with more filling to enjoy. How could that be bad? I wonder if some finely chopped walnuts in the crust for crunch would be good.

You have got me wondering if a pouch of peanut butter cookie mix would make a good crust for a chocolate cream pie.

Let us know how you make out!

That sounds great! I would use a lemon shortbread as a pie crust for lemon tarts...and chopped pecans in the shortbread.

OK, guys - that did it. I have to back away from the screen and try to forget all this deliciousness before I go coat a stick of butter with sugar and skip supper altogether.

ok i think i have it figured it out. the cookie dough would burn before filling is cooked. so will roll out dough, cut rounds and place in cupcake pan. dock the bottom . bake off. i will make the filling in my convection oven and fill the cookie crusts. i don't care for meringue so won't make it. what do you baking experts think. gonna do tomorrow.

My suggestion is that you invite me.

(I don't think the cookie crust would burn, BTW, but your way sounds delish.)
