    San Marcos Sunshine's Note:

    Preparation for my annual Easter Gala was in full swing, and I was hopelessly behind schedule. Finishing up the desserts, my housekeeper Teresa was licking the beaters with a silly smile. Knowing she doesn’t imbibe, I reminded her the “green stuff” was a liqueur. Running out of time, I asked if she could just stay another hour to help, I’d fork over a bonus and she could take home the extra food. She rolled her eyes and said, “I’d do ANYTHING for more of that Green Fluff.” Easter Brunch 2005 was a roaring success, and Teresa’s Temptation & Fall From Grace is permanent addition to our Favorite Things. It’s simple, very pretty and not too sweet. Now, who wouldn’t like that? Enjoy it for Easter or St. Pats!

      Seriously delicious! For even mintier result next time, I might change the water / creme de menthe ratio around.

      I poured it into an Oreo crust and piped more cream around the edge. You would think my party guests had never eaten before it was gone so fast.
