(And by "GREEN" I'm certainly not saying that this is a health conscious dish, by any means!!!)
This is a great treat for St. Patrick's Day, or for any day when you and your family want something sweet and easy to make. My 14 year old son made this pie for our males-only family pie contest this past Thanksgiving, and while he didn't win the prize, he DID gain great recognition as the Kids' Favorite, and only got to eat one slice of it himself because it disappeared so quickly! :-(
NOTE: This recipe does not require baking, yet it is not made with ice cream, and it does not have any alcohol in it (like other Grasshopper Pie recipes I've seen). And, of course, it does NOT contain GRASSHOPPERS!!!
We think it's pretty nummy! :-)
2 c. crushed Oreo cookies
1/3 cup butter, melted
Combine; set aside 1/4 c. for garnish. Press remaining crumb and butter mixture into a 9 inch pie pan.
1/4 cup milk
7 ounce jar marshmallow cream
3-5 drops mint extract
3-5 drops green food coloring
2 cups whipped cream or whipped topping
Stir marshmallow cream and gradually add milk until blended and syrupy. Add extract and food coloring. Fold whipped cream into marshmallow mixture. Pour into cookie crust. Top with reserved cookie crumbs. Freeze until set, and serve.
Happy St. Patrick's Day cooking! :-)
