We cheated and bought an oreo cookie crust that we just walked by in the grocery store and saw.....so that was nice.
Kelly and I are teaching Olya to cook and she really enjoys being in the kitchen. So this was a fun evening and our dessert for the meal. I had never had a Grasshopper Pie, it was really good. Kelly said he made one as a pot luck dish when he was in graduate school......hahaha So it had been a few years since he had eaten a Grasshopper Pie. It was enjoyed by all with that great mint flavor. Easy and tasty!
