You can freeze the crumbs.Sprinkle over ice cream,pudding,parfaits layered with pudding cookie crumbs, whipped topping and a little on top of the parfait,cheese cake crust.or over a frosted cake instead of nuts.

Hi again msgracie .... I was a member of the 'old' group but I never spoke there.  I think the 0 is no problem .... none of us here have ever seen or heard of any value at all for our numbers. 
To get a pix go to your Account Settings and click on Avatar Photo.  A little box pops up and you can go anywhere to get the photo you want to use ..... at least that's how I do it.
Maybe someone else will give you better information.

Use them to roll chops in or sprinkle over salads, or any other thing you can think of.  The sky is the limit!

Crumbs can be used to top ice cream or pudding.

I freeze cookie crumbs all the time.  There is or was a cookie outlet near us and my husband would buy bags of "broken" cookies for a $1.00 a bag.  When we got home I would take out the broken ones and put them in the blender or processor and then freeze the crumbs.
I follow recipes for crumb crust pie shell but I omit the sugar that is called for in the graham cracker crust recipes. I figure there is enough sugar in the cookies.
It is also a good base if you want to add coconut or other nuts to the crust, again omit sugar.

I also use them for part of the crumb topping for crisps.  I have added to pudding when making "dirt cups".
I also have a recipe for a cake that calls for 12 ounces of vanilla wafers crushed.  I use the cookie crumbs in place of the wafers.  I have posted the recipe for a Vanilla Tea Cake in my recipe box.  It is the recipe that calls for the crushed wafers.  Very good cake, interesting ingredients and odd baking time and temperature.  Give it a try.

For some reason, there is NEVER any cookie crumbs around this house!  However, I very much like the suggestions that have been mentioned, and next time I bake, I will (purposefully) break a few cookies as I transfer them to the cooling rack.

Oh my. I never saved them.  If I didn't have a use for them I would "share" them with the birds and the chipmunks.

The birds probably like your place the best!  It would take a lot of crumbs here - the birds go through a lot of birdseed each day.
