This is one of my favorite pies. I usually make it for Christmas ever year. Last year, with my sister getting married, things got a little chaotic and it didn’t get made. The ingredients for it (the cookies at least) have been sitting unopened in the pantry waiting for me since then. (The Cool Whip and cream cheese had been used and new ones purchased).
I don’t even know how to describe this pie. It’s cheesecake-y, but fluffier. It’s chocolate-y. It’s minty. It’s heavenly is what it is.
I got the recipe from my Mom. Not sure where she got it from.
