Reviews for Grasshopper Pie
"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."
"Quick to make and very tasty. I crushed some extra cookies and sprinkled them on top."
"I made this for Christmas, and everyone LOVED it! The recipe actally filled TWO 9" pie pans easily."
