Reviews forFrozen Grasshopper Pie
"Nice dessert for winter and summer. Not if you are watching calories."
"I have made this for a summer dessert and it was very refreshing. The second time I made for a Christmas holiday party and substituted 12 oz softened Cream Cheese for the marshmallows and just mixed with about 1/4 cup milk. I then folded the cream cheese mixture into the whipped cream (no melting and then cooling required) and spread into the cookie shell. I had rave reviews from guests as it made for a more creamier, richer texture."
