Yesterday I told you I was going to share my friend Kerry's, mother Bernadette Lego's, recipe for Creme de Menthe Pie. I was a little intimidated to make this recipe for Kerry, since this is one of her favorite recipe's from her mom. Anyway, I apparently did a good job, because Kerry had two pieces, and the next day my son Danny ate 1/3 of the pie. He finished what was left from the night before, and just came in to ask me if I could make another pie, because he really liked it.
So here is the recipe for Creme de Menthe Pie.
1 1/2 cups Nabisco's Famous chocolate wafer cookie crushed (about 3/4 of a box )
2 TB melted butter. You may need a little extra
2/3 cup half and half
24 large marshmellows ( not jumbo's just large )
1 oz. creme de menthe
1/2 oz creme de coco (white)
1 cup whipping cream (whipped)
Mix chocolate cookie crumbs with melted butter, put in a pie pan and push against pan. It is pretty crumbly, just do the best you can with getting it in the pan evenly on the bottom and sides. Place in freezer. The recipe called for overnight. I am never that organized, I just put it in while I was getting the rest of the ingredients together and it was frozen enough to put the filling in fine.
Combine the marshmellows and half and half. Heat until marshmellows are melted. Set in refrigerator to cool, while you make whipped cream.
Once cooled, fold in liquor and whipped cream.
Poor into pie shell and freeze. It is ready in a couple of hours.
Serve with whipped on top.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe. I always love to hearing what you have to say.
