Grasshopper Pie

September 26, 2013

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.

Rarely found on restaurant menus, Grasshopper Pie is a chilled minty green pie with an chocolate cookie crust, and will please diners of all ages. 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.

The combination of a sweet tooth and unbounded curiosity is dangerous indeed, which may be why so many generations of Schuler’s guest have fond memories of this dessert.
