Girl Scout Grasshopper Pie

Girl Scout Grasshopper Pie is a light and refreshing summertime treat.

My neighbor Ali really enjoys recipes by The Pioneer Woman and even has a book by Ree Drummond. Although I do not know much about The Pioneer Woman, she does have some interesting recipes. Girl Scout Grasshopper Pie is Ali’s take on Ree’s recipe. If you like Thin Mints, and you like mint chocolate, you will LOVE this recipe.
From start to finish, this recipe will take you about 20 minutes to prepare. The pie needs to chill in the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving.

    The hardest part about this pie is getting the marshmallow creme out of the jar. I had to try and make this pie after we all had a conversation about a grasshopper pie. It was fun to surprise my dinner guests with the topic of conversation for dessert!
