GRASSHOPPER PIE FROM THE 60’S BACKSTORY

I love to find these vintage dessert recipes when searching through my Mom’s and Grandma’s recipes.  This Super Easy No Bake Grasshopper Pie with Cool looks gorgeous doesn’t it? First launched in the 60’s, this recipe is definitely a classic. This was one of those old fashioned dessert recipes that moms everywhere took to bridge club, neighborhood potlucks, and church suppers.

Some of my favourites include our recipes for seven layer bars, old fashioned coffee cake, and key lime pie!

Do you remember marshmallow and jellied salads? Yep I know you do! Mom always had a jellied salad, and something with marshmallows in it for all of her dinners. Well this No Bake Grasshopper Pie from the 60’s is just like that.

Creating these awesome recipes from the past is so much fun.  The best part is that it gives you a chance to share with your family.  Now the 60’s is definitely going back a ways – well maybe not for me, but I’m sure for others! This would definitely be an early 60’s throwback, definitely before the Beatles and bell bottoms!

This past weekend we were invited to have lunch with our friends, Tony and Shelly.  Shelly offered to groom the dogs, so I wanted to be sure to take something sweet.

I know for a fact that Tony loves pie, and I’ve been wanting to make this No Bake Grasshopper Pie with Cool Whip , so this was the perfect opportunity.I knew I could whip it up Sunday morning and it would be ready to take long before we had to leave!  That’s how quickly you can make it.

My grasshopper pie recipe uses cream cheese blended with sweetened condensed milk and Cool Whip – I love the rich texture of it. And the combination of both creme de menthe and creme de cacao give it a unique taste don’t you think? I add just a few drops of green food coloring to get that gorgeous mint green color.

TIPS TO MAKE A PERFECT GRASSHOPPER PIE WITH COOL WHIP

  • Crush the cookies using your food processor, and add the melted butter
  • Press firmly into your greased 9” pie plate and chill while you are making the filling.
  • (TIP: make sure your pie plate has a wide rim on it or use a deep dish pie plate.  I used an aluminum foil pie plate since I’m still at the trailer)
  • In a large mixing bowl, whip the cream cheese until fluffy (tip: make sure the cream cheese is really soft)
  • Gradually add in the sweetened condensed milk until smooth
  • Stir in the lemon juice and the liqueurs – (tip: I used a whisk to really mix it well – the cream cheese tends to be a bit lumpy)
  • Fold in the Cool Whip.
  • Chill the filling for 20 minutes before you build your pie.

You can freeze the leftovers – maybe make a milkshake?  I’m really interested to hear if anyone tries this – be sure to let me know in the comments below!

Have fun with this and have the best day.

Building the pie:

  • Pour the filling into the cookie pie crust and smooth the top with some swirls with your knife.
  • Put in the fridge for 4 hours until it is set.

Garnish:

Sprinkle crushed cookies over the top and serve.
