St. Patrick's Day Peppermint Pie

St. Patrick's Day Peppermint Pie

Just in case you didn't get enough dessert ideas for tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day celebration, I thought I would give you one more. I've already given you two recipes that feature Bailey's Irish cream (a cheesecake and a chocolate cake) and one that is flavored with Irish whiskey (a creamy dream) and now I am going to tempt and tease you with a St. Patrick's Day peppermint pie that obtains its minty flavor from crème de menthe. I know some of you aren't throwing a party or going all out this year, so I suggest that you enjoy the holiday in the comfort of your own kitchen. Pop a bottle of bubbly, tie on your apron and make yourself a special dessert. While you wait for it to chill, you can sip your champagne and congratulate yourself for opting to stay in instead of going out with the masses of drunk people. For the recipe,

So I finished the pie and there's all but a teensy slice left b/c everyone keeps going back for more!! I ended up using the Cool Whip because I was too lazy to run out and get whipping cream and it was still delish!! Also, I skipped the first few steps by buying an Oreo crust (right along side with the graham cracker crusts in the baking isle) and pouring the filling into that! Thanks for the fun and SUPER easy desert! I'll be making this again soon (because I now own WAY too many marshmellows...you only need ONE bag of small ones...and when again will I use those weird liquors???)!!

Stickyheels, I would use fresh whipped cream rather than cool whip. Usually when you are making whipped cream to serve alone you add sugar to it, however when you use it as an ingredient in a batter, as in this pie, sweetened whipped cream is not necessary.

ok i'm confused...is it "whipping cream" or "whipped cream" i.e. cool whip? I know it wouldn't make that much of a difference but usually when you're just whipping cream you add some sugars etc... just got all the ingredients home and I bought cool whip so I guess we'll see...
