Place cookies in a food processor and pulse until only fine crumbs remain.
Drizzle in the melted butter and pulse several times until completely incorporated. You can also stir in the melted butter with a fork.
Transfer the crumbs to the prepared springform pan or pie plate and press firmly into the bottom and evenly up the sides of the pan. Use the bottom of a measuring cup or your hands to really press the crumbs into the bottom and sides of your pan.
