Place the cookies in batches in a plastic bag and beat using a rolling pin until they are completely crushed. Empty the cookies in a bowl. Add the sugar and pour over the melted butter. Mix well using your hands until you have a uniform mixture. Empty the mixture into a baking pan or pie plate and press with your fingers until you cover the bottom completely and uniformly.
