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
