Print this Recipe    Holiday Mint Pie

1 cup crushed Keebler Grasshopper Fudge Mint Cookies (16-18)
(mint flavored, chocolate sandwich cookies. Other sandwich cookies
and mint extract can be substituted)
3 Tbsp hot water
1 (6oz) graham cracker pie crust (or a chocolate one)
1 (3 oz) pkg. cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. milk
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
1 (8oz) container Cool Whip-thawed
6-10 drops green food coloring

Mix cookies and hot water. Spoon into crust and gently spread to
cover bottom. Beat cream cheese until smooth, gradually beat in
sugar, milk, and extract. Fold in whipped topping. (The recipe
says to split the mixture at this point and put food coloring in
one. Too much work--I made the whole thing pale green) Add food
coloring. Put dollops of mixture (some white, some green if you're
going that route) into crust. Smooth top with spatula.

Just before serving: Make berries (cinnamon candies) and holly
leaves (spearmint jelly candies) and decorate top. Very festive
and good.

Reviewer: Jamie N from Columbus, Ohio USA
I found this recipe on a cream cheese package a long time ago and decided to give it a try. I was amazed at how easy and fast it was to make! I made 1 pie to take with me for our family Thanksgiving. It has become such a favorite that I now have to make 3 pies!!!! I make this for all of my holiday parties and it is hands down a favorite!
