Ok, so maybe a mincemeat pie would be the quintessential Christmas Pie, but I had to veer off course with this, a happy and kitchy green Grasshopper Pie. To me it makes sense, and I hope it does to you too. It’s easy, it’s minty, and seems very appropriate. And however you’re celebrating today (us: a morning movie and then dinner with family), we wish you the merriest of holidays with plenty of love and comfort. Xoxoxo! — matt and adam
25 chocolate sandwich cookies
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups marshmallow creme
1/4 cup creme de menthe liquor
2 cups whipping cream
1. 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 springform pan.
2. 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.
