This is such an easy, light, pretty and delicious pie, using just a few ingredients. This is a very light -but rich pie. A lady I worked with over 15 years ago makes this with Sherry or Chambord whenever she needs to take something to a party. I always make mine with Crème de Menthe at Christmas, St. Patrick's Day and in the spring/summer, because I like the cool flavor and pretty green color.

Ingredients

  • 30 large
    marshmellows

How to Make Light as a Cloud Creme de Menthe Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt marshmallows in Crème de Menthe; Cool thoroughly.
  2. Fold in whipped cream.
  3. Put in graham cracker crust.
  4. Chill overnight – or at least 2 hours.
  5. * Don’t be tempted to put in more than ½ cup. If you do it will be too liquidly; too strong; and it won’t set up good.
  6. HINT: If you put the bowl and beaters that you will use for whipping the whipped cream in the freezer for a little bit, the beaters and bowl will be nice and cold and the whip cream will whip up nicely.
  7. A bottle of liqueur lasts me forever -as the pies are the only recipes I use it in. Of course Creme de Menthe has a cool, minty flavor; Chambord is a Raspberry liqueur; Kahlua is like an iced coffee with cream -you can buy strawberry, cherry and other flavors as well. ENJOY!!!!!
  8. NOTE: 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 added to 1/2 cup half-n-half or unwhipped whipping cream, then proceed with the recipe.

What’s more American than a just baked, straight out of the oven, old-fashioned apple pie? Turns out, a lot of things.
