25 Days of Christmas - Holiday Mint Pie

So, um... I hit 200 followers yesterday.  That's a little bit insane.  You guys rock my socks.  You know what though, I'm not wearing socks right now... tell you what, I'll go put some on.  Thank you!!

This is my sister's recipe.  And since it is her recipe, I went to her house to take the pictures of the pie-in-process.  And since I went to her house, she demanded that I include her in my post.

Her name is Angie.  She does not like to be called Angela.  There.  She's been included.

The ingredients needed to make this super-awesome pie are:

1 cup of mint flavored chocolate cookies.  Keebler makes 'em... they're fabulous.
3 tbsp hot water
Chocolate pie crust
3 oz cream cheese
1/3 cup of sugar
2 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp peppermint extract
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
Green food coloring
Take half the package of cookies and throw them into a chopper or food processor to turn them into crumbs.

It's like magic.

Next, pour the crumbs into a bowl and mix with the hot water.  MY SISTER WOULD LIKE YOU TO KNOW THAT EVEN THOUGH THE PICTURE SHOWS THIS ON THE STOVE, YOU ARE NOT HEATING IT.  For some reason, she always does this part in a pan on the stove.  She's an odd girl.
Mix it together until it's all combined.
Once it's all combined, pour it into the pie crust.
Spread it around evenly...

Use a mixer to beat the cream cheese until it's smooth and then add the sugar, milk and extract.
Once that's smooth, fold in the Cool Whip.
Fold in in completely until it's smooth and pretty.  Add the peppermint extract.

Divide the mixture into two bowls.
In one of the bowls, add a few drops of green food coloring and stir until you're happy with the shade of green.
Next, you'll take spoonfuls of each color and drop them into the pie crust, alternating colors.  Here's a picture to explain:
Keep adding the colors until the pie is full and then spread the top to make it smooth.
Let it set up in the fridge for a few hours and then serve.  It's amazing.  And delicious.  And if you get your sister to do it for you, you'll only have to take the pictures.  At least, that was my experience.
Sixteen days until Christmas!

  1. This looks delicious!!!! I need to make this soon!!

  2. That looks amazing chocolate and mint are my favorite. Too bad I don't have a sister to make it for me so it looks like I'll have to do it myself

  3. Congrats on 200 followers, girlfriend! This pie does looks yummy,(thanks Angie). ;)

  4. DELICIOUSNESS! I don't think I would ever get to the step beyond opening the bag of mint chocolate cookies, I'm going to try though. This is dreamy, I am going shopping tomorrow, thanks!

  5. The only problem I ran into while making this was getting the cookie mixture spread on the pie crust. My crust crumbled to an awful mess because the cookie mixture kept sticking to it.

  6. @Summer, I would add a little more water. I made this pie myself last week and added another teaspoon or so of water to make the cookies spread easier... it didn't affect the taste at all.


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
