For Crust:  

Mix cookie crumbs and butter; divide mixture evenly into each of 4 half-sheet pans. Place sheet of parchment paper over crumb mixture in 1 of the pans; use second sheet pan to firmly press crumb mixture onto bottom of pan. Repeat with remaining pans. Bake crusts at 325°F for 8 minutes. Cool completely.
