Easy Grasshopper Pie

I love a good easy dessert recipe and this is definitely one. You have to make sure you make it a day ahead so that it has enough time to freeze to the right consistency, but other than that this pie is a breeze to make. And it's super yummy. It ends up tasting a lot like mint ice cream. Yum. We had it for FHE yesterday and everyone liked it a lot.

Easy Grasshopper Pie

pre-made or bought Oreo cookie crust
7 oz jar marshmallow fluff
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract (I used a little less than 1/2 teaspoon)
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
green food coloring
a few crushed Oreos for topping

In a mixer combine marshmallow fluff and milk and beat until combined. Add Cool Whip and peppermint extract to taste and whip until smooth. Add green food coloring until mint green in color. Spread into prepared pie crust. Top with crushed Oreos. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 1 day (it needs that long to freeze through and set up).
