Grasshopper pie on a plate, garnished with a mint Oreo cookie
Grasshopper pie, my 2013 birthday treat
Barry’s favorite, from his Grandma

Crust: 1 1/4 c. crushed oreo type cookies(about 20 cookies)
scant 1/3 c. melted butter or margarine

Mix ingredients together and pat into a 9 inch pie pan covering
bottom and sides. Chill

Filling: 28 large marshmallows
2/3 cup milk
1/4 c. green creme de menthe
2 T creme de cocoa
1/2 pint(1 cup) whipping cream, whipped

Scald milk over direct heat in top section of double boiler.
Remove from heat and add marshmallows. Place over simmering water
and stir till marshmallows are melted. Add creme de menthe and creme
de cocoa. Cool. Fold in whipped cream and pile into crust. Freeze.

Let sit in refrigerator for a while before serving.

That is it. If you have 1 1/2 c. crumbs, that is ok as it doesn’t make a very
thick crust when you’re covering all of a pie pan. If you happen to do this in
8 inch square pans and only cover the bottom, this recipe makes 2 pans.

It is quite a refreshing tasting dessert.
