Tomorrow is PI Day! Wednesday is St. Patrick’s Day! To celebrate both is the super easy delicious pie.

Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie

I have some friends that celebrate PI Day every year. We missed it last year and will miss it this year too except for virtually. But we are a little nerdy, enjoy a good pun, and of course love desserts! It’s the perfect day!!!

Description

This minty ice cream pie is so Yummy!  Chocolate, mint and ice cream!  Who could resist!


Ingredients

For the Crust:

1 1/2 Cups Chocolate Wafer Cookie Crumbs – between 30-35 wafers

5 Tablespoons of Butter, melted and let cooled a little

3 Tablespoons of Sugar

For the Pie Filling:

1 Quart of Vanilla Ice Cream softened

2 teaspoons Creme de Menthe – green or white

Green and Blue food coloring 


Instructions

For the Crust:

Preheat the oven to 350.

In a food processor pulse the chocolate wafer cookies until they turn into crumbs.

Add the butter and the sugar and pulse 2-3 times until well blended

Pat the chocolate mixture into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan.

Bake until the crust is firm 5-7 minutes

Let cool completely

For the Pie Filling:

Spoon into cooled pie crust.  Freeze 3-5 hours or overnight.

Enjoy!

 

 

 

Notes

You can of course use a store bought chocolate cookie crust.

You can substitute 1 teaspoon peppermint extract for the Creme de Menthe.

If you are feeling particularly wild, you can chop up some Andes Chocolate mint candies and combine them in the Ice Cream Mixture

I hope you enjoy Pi Day and the Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie!
