Combine cookie crumbs and butter in bowl. Press onto bottom of ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes.
Melt morsels in bowl on Medium-high (70% power) 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving, stirring often, 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Cool 15 minutes or to room temperature.

It says not to grease the bottom of the springform pan, I would rub some butter on the bottom so the crust edges don't stick when removing pieces of the cheesecake.
