Frozen Mint Oreo Pie

   So here is my green recipe tribute to St. Patricks Day! ........

      Yeah I know it isnt the most intense green color, but atleast I tried! ha  This pie was amazingly delish. I found it off of Joy in my Kitchen. What a great food blog she has! She must have used a lot more green food coloring than she says in her recipe because her version looks way greener than mine! Who cares, it was really good and that's all that matters. It looks deceiving because you would think this is made of ice cream, but it isnt. It is marshmellow fluff, whip cream and milk all mixed together with some peppermint extract. Very easy. Very good. Give it a try, you wont be dissappointed!  : )
P.S.  I am FINALLY printer-friendly! At the end of each post/recipe there is a green 'printer-friendly' button so you can print off the recipe!   : )


FROZEN MINT OREO PIE
8 servings

  • 2 cups crushed Oreo cookies
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 7 oz jar Marshmellow Fluff
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 2 drops (1/2 tsp) peppermint extract
  • 3-4 drops Green food coloring
  • 1 cup whipping cream, whipped

Directions:   Combine cookie crumbs and butter together (Reserving 1/8 cup of oreos for topping). Press into a 9-inch pie plate.
Start beating your whipping cream in a large bowl with a hand mixer. Beat on high for atleast 5-8 minutes or until it is fluffy and thick.
In a seperate large bowl combine marshmellow fluff and milk. Mix well. Blend in peppermint extract and food coloring. Fold in the whip cream.
Spread on top of the oreo crust. Top with remaining cookie crumbs. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze overnight!

I love this recipe so much! I can imagine how incredible it would taste...

I mean, oreos are good enough..but in pie form it would be perfect!

Oh wow! This is one of the best Irish themed dishes I've seen - because it's subtlely green, not garishly so (I prefer my food to look natural). Any excuse for an oreo cookie and I'm there!!
