My husband and son loved this pie. It was very easy to make. I didn't change a thing. The mint flavor isn't overwhelming. The creme de cacao and creme de menthe are a perfect flavor combination in this pie. I just served it with a dollop of whipped cream.

This is the same recipe my mom has been making for as long as I can remember. It's a family favorite, passed down from her mother. An excellent St.Patty's Day dessert as well.
