This is the dessert that I made for St. Patrick's day. Since the weather has been so warm here lately I just have summer on my mind and what a great pie for summer this is! So cold, tasty and delicious! Certainly not a dessert for just St. Patrick's day. This is one pie that I've always had in the back of my mind to make and finally have gotten around to it. I have to say that with buying the booze for this it can become costly. I don't normally have Creme de Menthe and Creme de Cacao around the house and I now have 2 large bottles sitting here. I am going to have to find ways to incorporate them into other recipes. I don't think that will be a problem though. My husband picked up a large container of vanilla ice cream earlier in the week and has really enjoyed having it with some creme de menthe over the top. Me? I don't really drink alcohol much but I have to tell you that this is good and can be addicting. It doesn't hurt either if you love anything with mint like I do!
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a bowl (I used a food processor) mix crushed chocolate sandwich cookies and butter. Pat into bottom and sides of 10 inch pie dish. (I used 9 inch pie dish). Bake in oven for 5 to 10 minutes; remove from oven and cool completely. Once cooled, place in freezer to chill.
In medium saucepan , melt the marshmallows in milk over medium heat. Remove from heat and cool. Add creme de menthe and creme de cacao and mix well. Add a drop or two of green food dye if desired. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into chilled pie shell. Freeze for 3 to 4 hours.
