Luck of the Irish Creme de Menthe Pie

Pat Morris


A good pie to celebrate with on St. Patrick's Day, as well as in the spring, Easter and Christmas.

I previously posted this recipe as "Light as a Cloud Creme de Menthe Pie," but thought I'd post it with the St. Patrick's Day recipes. I plan to make it on St. Paddy's Day. I thought you may like to try it then too.

This is a light -but rich pie. I like the cool mint flavor & pretty green color. Since I am part Irish -St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite times -with all the good dishes & celebrations. Happy St. Paddy's Day. I hope that you find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

30 large
1/2 c
crème de menthe
1 pt
whipping cream (whipped)
graham cracker crust or chocolate cookie crust

Directions Step-By-Step

Melt marshmallows in Crème de Menthe; Cool thoroughly
Fold in whipped cream.

Put in cookie crust
Chill overnight – or at least 2 hours
NOTE 1: Don’t be tempted to put in more than 1/2 cup Creme de Menthe. If you do it will be too liquidly and it won’t set up good.
NOTE 2: To make this non-alcoholic, replace the Crème de Menthe with 1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons (taste after adding 1-1/2 teaspoons) of Peppermint or Spearmint extract to the un-whipped whipping cream.
