Cookie Crumb Torte
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla
1/3 cup half & half
3 cups cookie crumbs
1/2 cup flour
2 cups toasted almonds, finely chopped
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Stir in vanilla and half & half. Fold in crumbs, flour and almonds. Pour into greased (and wax-paper lined) 10" tube pan. Bake at 300° for one hour and forty minutes. Cool thoroughly and dust with powdered sugar.
We've had some sugar cookie crumbs sitting in the freezer for a while, and I was looking for a way to use them, something other than a variation of a graham cracker pie crust. This was the answer.
