Actually, this is about Grasshopper Pie. But Grasshopper Pie reminds me of one of my favorite jokes.
A grasshopper walks into a bar and the bartender says, ”Hey, we have a drink named after you!”
The grasshopper looks surprised and says, ”You have a drink named Steve?’
Whether you call it Grasshopper Pie or Steve, it still tastes great!
25 chocolate sandwich cookies (I use Oreos)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups marshmallow creme
1/4 cup creme de menthe liqueur
2 cups whipping cream
Crush cookies and set aside 1/4 cup of crumbs. Place remaining crumbs in a medium bowl and mix in melted butter. Press mixture firmly into bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan.
In a large mixing bowl, whip together marshmallow creme and creme de menthe until smooth. In a separate bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form, then fold into marshmallow mixture. Pour mixture into pan and sprinkle reserved cookie crumbs on top. Freeze at least 2 hours, until firm. Remove from freezer 20 minutes before serving to soften slightly.
