  2. Put cookies in food processor; pulse until fine crumbs (or place in a bag, and bang with a rolling pin) Press crumbs into bottom and up side of 9-inch springform pan. Use the back of a tablespoon to press into place. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  3. Add chocolate chips to ice cream if desired. Scrape softened ice cream into cookie crust. Gently shake the pan side to side to remove any air pockets. Smooth top with the back of a spoon or spatula; place in the freezer for 1 hour.
