In food processor or with mixer, process or beat crust ingredients until mixture clumps together. Press evenly over bottom of prepared pan. Bake 12 to 15 minutes until light golden and firm when touched.

Meanwhile, whisk filling ingredients in a medium bowl until blended. Stir in drops of food coloring until evenly tinted. Pour over crust. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown and set.
