Grasshopper Pie: a cool & minty mousse filling, nestled into a crunchy chocolate Oreo crust & topped with whipped cream. Easy to make & so refreshing!
Place the cookies in the bowl of a food processor and process until fine.
Drizzle in the melted butter and toss together until combined.
Press the mixture into the bottom of a standard sized pie dish.
Whip the cream cheese and powdered sugar together on medium speed until smooth.
While continuing to whip, add the heavy cream in a slow, steady stream, stopping frequently to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula.
When all the cream has been added, turn the mixer up to high speed and whip until the mousse can hold stiff peaks (about 30 seconds).
Fold in the peppermint extract, green food coloring, and chopped Oreos (if using).
Transfer the filling to the prepared pie crust, and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
Whip the cream and powdered sugar together until it holds soft peaks.
Layer the whipped cream over the mint mousse filling, and top with chocolate shavings.*
*To make chocolate shavings, run a veggie peeler down the side of a bar of chocolate.
