1 (16 ounce) package gingersnap cookies
⅓ cup brown sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Gather all ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Set aside 12 to 18 whole gingersnap cookies. Crush remaining cookies until you have 1 1/2 cups fine crumbs. Reserve any remaining cookies for another use.
Mix gingersnap crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter together in a bowl until well combined.
Press mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.
Arrange whole gingersnap cookies upright around the border of the springform pan, pressing into the base and overlapping slightly if necessary, so that they stand firmly.
Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 7 minutes. Cool crust completely before filling.
