BF&F – Best Friends and Foodies

Baking Tuesday – Grasshopper Pie

I am not going to take credit for this pie…because I didn’t make it 🙂  However, I made a HUGE dinner for St. Patty’s Day (the yummiest roast beef EVER! Which I stupidly did not take a photo of but will probably still post the recipe, it was so good!) and asked my pal to bring dessert. She brought this really yummy, really very simple Grasshopper Pie.  See, it’s green!  How fitting is that?!?! 

We decided it would be equally delicious with the crust made from Girl Scout “mint thins” as her 4-year-old calls them.  Or crumble them to add to the filling.  Or, cut up some small cubes of brownie and add to the filling and/or on top.  Really, there are any number of ways to “spice it up” with this delicious dessert.

ENJOY!
