For any single crust pie, including those where the recipe calls for a cookie crumb crust, consider using a press-in crust -- so easy!! -- that tastes like a really good cookie (graham crackers and vanilla wafers don’t meet that description, to my mind), such as the one used in this tart:

The standalone recipe for the nut crescent crust is here:

Amanda's peach tart recipe has a nice press-in crust, too, for a different approach:

Highly recommended.
