    This was tasty. I used a premade cookie crust, so I ended up with excess filling. I put it in the freezer in a container, then mixed it with fresh whipped cream. I topped each pie piece with a dollop of the whip cream and some andes mint candy pieces. Yum! My mom used a recipe that included gelatin when I was kid that did not require freezer time and held up better for serving. This was very tasty, but I prefer the texture of the one using gelatin.

    Cool and refreshing and so easy to whip up. I made this for a co-worker's birthday today and it was quickly and happily devoured. One girl said "It was crazy today and I was stressed but this pie put me in a happier place." I used crushed chocolate graham crackers for the crumbs but otherwise prepared exactly as written. DH is extremely happy with this pie!

    My Aunt Marlene had given me this recipe she has had for years. She uses white creme de cacao and she chills the pie for 3-4 hours before serving. Makes a great presentation!

    I love this pie! With dark chocolate shaved over the top it's delicious. I make it every year for Christmas. I do increase the liqueur a little. Be warned, though, that if you add too much extra it won't freeze.

I live in Northern Alberta, grew up on a farm and was cooking meals for six since I was about ten. Now it's just me and my hubby and I love trying new recipes and foods. He's an excellent cook and we're always trying to outdo each other in the kitchen.
