Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 2 quart baking dish with parchment paper allowing an overhang for easy removal. Spray parchment paper with cooking spray.
Pulse crust ingredients together in a food processor until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Press crust mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan in an even layer.
Bake crust for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.
