It’s green, it’s good and it’s easy to make.

Aunt Polly’s Grasshopper Pie

In our family everyone gets to pick their birthday cake and most choices don’t fall into the traditional category and well, neither do most family members.

One of our favorites has been handed down from the Perry side of our lineage. It’s perfect for those who don’t bake, and as my littlest one who only likes the frosting on cakes and cupcakes, often handing them back sans topping would say there’s no dough!

24 Oreo cookies
20 Large Marshmallows
1/2 c milk
1/2 pint cream, whipped
4 tbs creme de mente

crush the cookies and press them into the cake pan making a crust.

in a double boiler, melt marshmallows in milk
let cool
add creme de ment and whipped cream
fold and blend
sprinkle crumbs on the top
chill for a few hours or pop it in the freezer to speed up the process.

If you would like to take it a step further by making the Oreos and Marshmallows your own check out my favorite recipes on smitten kitchen; springy-fluffy-marshmallows and my-kingdom-for-a-glass-of-milk:
