I like random silly holidays like Pi day, and I have a sweet tooth, so I like pies, too. For fun, I thought I'd share the recipe for my most favorite pie of all: the grasshopper pie. If you never had it, it basically tastes just like frozen Thin Mints. Read: Amazing. I've been making this recipe since 6th grade and it's delicious and easy to make. Enjoy!
1 1/4 cup fine chocolate wafer crumbs
1/2 cup of butter, melted
1 premade Oreo cookie pie crust (I've done this the last few times I've made it)
1/2 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
20 marshmallows (regular size)
3 tablespoons creme de cacao
3 tablespoons creme de menthe
green food coloring
-If making the crust, combine wafer crumbs and butter. Blend and shape to pie pan, chill in pan till solid.
-Heat milk in double boiler, add marshmallows and stir until melted. Cook thoroughly.
-Combine whipped heavy cream, creme de cacao, creme de menthe and a few drops of green food coloring.
-Fold into cooked marshmallow mixture.
-Pour into chilled crust and chill pie until firm.
I don't usually add anything to the top, but before it's chilled completely, you could add cookie crumbles, or if you want to be fancy, drizzle or shave chocolate on top.
