The old adage that “life is short, eat dessert first” may have been invented with this type of smooth concoction in mind.
Over the years, several ice cream pies have been featured on Schuler’s menus, including Peppermint Ribbon Pie and Wine Pie (with raisins). The favorite ice cream pie may well have been Grasshopper pie, however- a dessert with an intriguing name, a vibrant color, and an unforgettable taste.

The recipe for Grasshopper Pie is 100% grasshopper-free. It does use chocolate sandwich cookies, as well as crème de menthe. The result is certain to satisfy you palate, and it also is one of the world’s loveliest desserts.
