I tried an alcohol-based cream pie on Valentine's Day. It was so delicious, I wanted to make one. I didn't have that alcohol available so I thought I would use Baileys Irish Cream. I hope everyone enjoys this pie.

Ingredients For simple irish cream pie

  • 28
    chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 5 Tbsp
    butter, melted
  • 28
    jet puffed marshmallows
  • 1 can
    evaporated milk
  • 1/4 c

  • 1 1/3 c

How To Make simple irish cream pie

  • 1
    Place the sandwich cookies into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Place in a medium bowl and pour melted butter to coat the cookies. Press into a 9 or 10-inch pie plate. (Or buy an already made chocolate pie crust or other pie crust. A deep dish one will work great!)
  • 2
    Using a double boiler, place marshmallows into the top pot with the can of evaporated milk. Bring boiler to a boil and melt the marshmallows completely. Remove double boiler from heat and take top pot off of boiler so it can cool quicker.
  • 3
    Let this mixture cool completely. Once completely cooled, add the Irish cream (I use Baileys) and mix well. (For less boozy flavor, use 3 Tbsp; for a more boozy pie, use 6 Tbsp.)
  • 4
    Whip the whipping cream in a stand mixer (if possible) until stiff peaks form. Fold the whipping cream into the cooled Baileys mixture. Then pour into pie crust. Let set in the refrigerator for at least 5 hours. (Better if can set overnight.)

    Top with crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies. Serve and Enjoy!
