Grasshopper Pie

A pie for the books
Chocolate and peppermint
Creamy, dreamy, bliss

Grasshopper Pie
Adapted from Keebler

1 Oreo cookie crust
8 oz cream cheese
3/4 cups sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
8 drops green food coloring (about 1/8 tsp) - optional
8 oz Cool Whip, thawed
16-20 Keebler Grasshopper Cookies, crushed into small pieces*

*You can put the cookies in the freezer for 10-15 minutes for easier crushing (so the chocolate coating doesn't melt).  If you want cookies for decoration on top of the pie, you will end up using a whole package (half for crushing, half for decorating).

1.  Beat the cream cheese with an electric (hand-held or stand) mixer until fluffy.  Add the sweetened condensed milk, extracts, and coloring (if using).  Beat until smooth.

2.  Fold the Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture.  Gently fold in the cookie pieces.

3.  Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust.  Cover and chill for at least three hours before serving.
