  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups crushed chocolate-covered mint cookies
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 6 to 10 drops green food coloring, optional

Directions

  • Set aside 2 tablespoons cookie crumbs for garnish. In a small bowl, combine remaining crumbs with enough hot water to make crumbs spreadable. Spread over the graham cracker crust; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in the sugar, milk and extract until smooth. Fold in whipped topping.
  • If food coloring is desired, divide mixture in half and add coloring to one half. Alternately spoon mounds of plain and colored mixture into crust; swirl with a knife. Sprinkle with reserved cookie crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm.

    This pie was okay. Easy to make, pleasing green color, but it honestly tasted exactly like toothpaste.

    My mom has made this for years. It is light and not overpowering. I'm not usually a fan of desserts like this, but I make sure to get a slice of this stuff!
