Mint Dirt Pie

Every year I make a dirt pie for Thanksgiving. This year my husband requested mint and I came up with this variation of my original recipe.
Mint Dirt Pie (this is the ingredients for 2 pies)

2 Oreo Pie Crusts
2 (4 oz) boxes of Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 cups of milk
2 tubs of (softened) Cool Whip
1 package of Oreo or similar sandwich cookies
1 package of Thin Mint Girl Scout or Grasshopper cookies
1 bag of Andes Mint Bits
Optional: Box of Junior Mints

Mix the pudding & milk with a whisk, fold in the cool whip. Crush the sandwich & mint cookies (I use my food processor) to make dirt. Mix the cookie dirt & mint bits into the pudding mixture and pour into the pie crusts. Refrigerate for a few hours. I put a few Junior Mints on top of each slice as it was served. My dirt pie is always the first to disappear!

  10. My husband's favorite dessert is Zebra cake, basically whipped cream and chocolate wafer cookies. Boring! Your mint dirt pie sounds so much better! He is going to LOVE it! Thanks for sharing,
