Lemon Pucker Pie

I just tried the new Lively Lemon Cookie from Enjoy Life Foods.  What a yummy treat!  I was about to create a recipe for a pie crust using these cookies and then I went online to the Enjoy Life Foods website and found that they already have a delicious recipe for pie.  I am also planning on using this crust as a base for cheesecake.  Here is the recipe that is on their website at www.enjoylifefoods.com.   If you go to their website you can print off a coupon for 55 cents off your purchase.
