An All Occasion Pie

During the holidays, substitute green creme de menthe for the clear cream de menthe. Make a chocolate cookie crust made from crushed oreo Cookies. Garnish  the pie with crushed red and white candy canes. Grasshopper Pie is delicious and the perfect multi-festive holiday dessert. Once again for St Patrick’s Day, use green colored cream de menthe. In the summertime this cool and minty pie is so refreshing.

Grasshopper or Grasshopper Pie

A grasshopper is a cocktail made with cream, crème de menthe and white crème de cacao. Because it’s very sweet, a grasshopper is usually served as an after dinner drink. A grasshopper pie is flavored with crème de menthe and white crème de cacao, enriched by whipping cream and lightened with beaten egg whites. It typically has a graham-cracker or cookie-crumb crust. Garnish with fresh mint leaves, chocolate curls and Crème de Pirouline Rolled Wafer Cookies.
