Grasshopper Pie

I only need six ingredients to whip up this fluffy and refreshing grasshopper pie. I usually make two of the minty treats for our family, since we're never satisfied with just one slice. —LouCinda Zacharias, Spooner, Wisconsin

      This pie was delicious! I made it for some nursing home patients for St. Patrick's say. It was was very easy to make. I did add a bit of mint extract and I used a mixture of mint oreos and regular oreos instead of the cookies suggested. Two batches filled 3 store bought oreo crusts perfect. It Was a bit messy to cut and melted if sat out too long. Next time I will cut back on the milk so it sets better. Overall very good pie. It was a hit. I would definitely make it ag again!

      Sounds great. Since I live alone, I will buy the smaller pie crusts and fill those so it will be easier for me to share with my friends and neighbors Think I will also use either the thin mints or the Girl Scout cookies.

      Mine is in the freezer right now, serving it up tomorrow! Does not require much ingredients, easy to make. No bake. With this recipe you could easily make 2 pies with it.

      Great easy recipe... Adding a dash of mint extract is also good.
