Magic Mint Pie
2 cups crushed mint chocolate cookies
8 T. softened butter
Chocolate Filling
1 cup sugar
3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
3 ounces mint chocolate chips
¼ cup cornstarch
4 egg yolks
2 ½ cups half and half
1 t. vanilla
2 T. butter
Green Mint Filling
1 cup softened butter
8 ounces softened cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
1 t. mint extract
4 drops green food coloring
Mint Chocolate Topping
6 ounces mint chips
¼ cup cream
1 T. corn syrup


Whipped cream, Andes mints, shaved chocolate
Combine crushed cookies and butter in a bowl. Press into pie pan and chill until later use.
Chocolate Filling: Combine sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks, chocolates, half-half in a heavy sauce pan. Cook over medium high heat until chocolate melts and mixture thickens and is bubbly. Remove from heat and add the butter and vanilla. Once butter melts, run the mixture through a fine mesh sieve set over a clean bowl to remove any cooked egg pieces. Place plastic wrap directly on top of the filling and cool in refrigerator for about 1 hour.
Green Mint filling
Combine butter and cream cheese and mix until smooth. Add powdered sugar, extract, and food coloring. Mix until combined.
Mint Chocolate topping
Combine all ingredients together and microwave until melted and smooth. Cool.
Assemble the pie
Place half of the green mint filling in baked pie crust. Pour or spoon cooled chocolate filling over this. Top with remaining green mint filling. Spread Mint Chocolate topping on next. Top with whipped cream, Andes mint pieces and shaved chocolate.
