Peppermint Pie

 

 

 

This is what we had for dessert today. It was fantastic! We only have a tiny box freezer (the kind inside the fridge), so it didn’t set well, but I’ll definitely make it again. I coloured mine minty green and added crushed mint candies and grated chocolate to the mix. To serve, I topped the pie with stiffly beaten cream and more grated chocolate. Decadent enough to be very festive, but refreshing enough not to overwhelm the taste buds after a heavy meal.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
2 teaspoons peppermint extract
2 cups heavy cream, whipped
Red food coloring (optional)

Combine cookie crumbs and sugar. Add butter; mix well. Press firmly on bottom and part way up sides of wax paper 9-inch springform pan. Chill.
In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on low until fluffy. Gradually beat in EAGLE BRAND®. Stir in extract and food coloring, (optional); mix well. Fold in whipped cream.
