The only thing I changed was to use green Creme de Menthe and omit the food coloring. Very enjoyable pie light and not as super sweet as other recipes I've tried. My husband now has a - Read more ...
  2. I don't understand why people rate recipes and sy they are wonderful but...........and then change everything. It is then not the same recipe. This recipe is perfect just as it is!

  7. Wowie! This is a dandy. I took so many liberties with the recipe that it should have flopped. It turned out fantastic. Make this one. You won't be sorry. You could cut down on the hooch if you wanted but why would you?
  8. This pie tastes excellent! Just like you would find in a top-noche gourmet restaurant!
