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

How to Make Luck of the Irish Creme de Menthe Pie

Step-by-Step

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

    Put in cookie crust
  3. Chill overnight – or at least 2 hours
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
