Creme de Mint Pie and Thanksgiving Faves

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and for all of us ‘Foodies’ out there that means some serious cooking will be going on…

As a kid, I looked forward to this time of year for one reason and one reason only!  My Grams Grasshopper Pie! (otherwise known as Creme de Mint Pie).

Gram’s Grasshopper Pie is the pie I grew up on… every year when we would go to Gram’s house for holiday dinners, I would ask her how many pies she’d made.  It was always a variety of pecan, pumpkin, fruit, AND the Grasshopper Pie.  She always had at least 4 of them tucked away in her freezer AND with 26 grand kids, you’d have to!

Here is an awesome round up of Thanksgiving recipes from my favorite blogging friends and some of our families favorites too…

    Hi there, what is Creme de Menthe? I’m not sure if I have it in my country. Is there an alternative to that? Your pie looks delicious and I would love to have a go at it.
