Help with cheesecake crust

Hi. I typically make Rachael Ray's quick tiramisu for DH's birthday, to go with the lasagna I make. This year, I'm thinking of making tiramisu cheesecake bars, but I've already bought the Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies I use instead of ladyfingers.

My question is, can I use the Milanos for a cheesecake crust by whizzing them in the food processor with melted butter? Would the chocolate in the cookies cause a problem? Thanks.

I would think the chocolate would act like the butter to bind it together. I would put a few thought the chopper and then feel it. If you can make it into a ball, I would say you're good. If it doesn't, add a little butter. Just thoughts ... Sounds like a delicious idea!

I've used chocolate sandwich cookies as a crust. Worked fine for me :)

I'd give them a try. Quick tip - don't grind them too fine. I did that once with 'Nilla Wafers and didn't like the texture.

I am sitting here laughing because the simplest words we use ever day are foreign to someone else. And visa versa. Who would have thought that chickens in Australia weren't chickens.
