Grasshopper Pie {Milk Bar Monday 6/4}

It’s time for another Milk Bar Monday!

I am really starting to love mondays…aren’t you?

This week’s recipe was chosen by Nicole of Sweet Peony.

In the book Christina talks about how she wishes she could have made it work with the liquid cheesecake.

But I liked the sweet and minty flavor of the filling. It wasn’t overwhelmingly cream cheesy.

The final product is a dense brownie in a graham cracker crust with a layer of creamy mint filling separating the two.

Recipe note: I had to bake my pie an additional 5 minutes. I also refrigerated the pie overnight before slicing into it.
