Ingredients

For the Pie

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth, then scrape down the sides and beat in the sweetened condensed milk until well blended.
  • Add the peppermint extract and enough green food coloring to color it mint green.  Keep in mind that the color will lighten when the whipped cream is folded into the mixture.
  • Whip the cream until it is firm, but not dry.  Fold it into the peppermint mixture until it is well mixed, then pour into the Oreo crust and smooth the top.
  • Slice the mint Oreos in half and place them around the edge of the pie.
  • Carefully cover with aluminum foil and freeze for at least 20 hours before serving.
  • Let the grasshopper pie sit out for 10 minutes before slicing. Run a sharp knife under hot water and dry it off, then cut. Heat and dry the knife between each slice. Enjoy immediately.

Notes

  • Be sure to use full-fat cream cheese for the best flavor and texture.
  • To increase the mint flavor, use mint Oreos in the homemade Oreo crust instead of the regular ones.
  • Serve it frozen and store the leftovers in the freezer for up to 1 month.
  • If you must keep it out of the freezer for a long time, put the dish in a larger dish filled with ice to help keep it cold.
  • For a dairy-free version, use coconut oil in the crust.  Use vegan cream cheese, a 14-ounce can of coconut cream, and sweetened condensed coconut milk in the filling.
