I only need six ingredients to whip up this fluffy and refreshing grasshopper pie. I usually make two of the minty treats for our family, since we're never satisfied with just one slice. —LouCinda Zacharias, Spooner, Wisconsin

"Really easy to make and tasted delicious!!!!!! This was the perfect cool treat on a hot day! I couldn't find a pack of 24 mint-choccolate cookies at our grocery store and instead bought a 15 cookie pack and just skipped putting the cookies on the top. I also substituted 2 cups of whipped cream for the whipped topping and it was divine!!! We will be making this again!"

"This was very easy to make and it tastes delicious! I only used an 8 oz container of whipped topping and I still couldn't fit the whole filling into the crust. I also used Girl Scout thin mint cookies. Would definitely make this again."
