Mint Brownie Pie


When Mom's best friend and her husband came for a visit she wanted me to make a special dessert that said "Welcome, we're so glad you're here!!!" Yeah, she was pretty excited. : ] So we found this in one of her recipe books and I made it special by melting chocolate chips and piping them into little stars, then I put them in the fridge to harden. They looked really cool! I also piped chocolate on top for decoration and of course, more chocolate!

Mint Brownie Pie-
From Taste Of Home Annual Recipes- 2000

Melt together in a saucepan 6 tablespoons of butter and 2 squares (1 oz. each) unsweetened chocolate.

Stir in 1 cup of sugar until well blended.

Add 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Mix well.

Stir in 1/2 cup flour until well blended.

Pour into a greased 9 inch springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Filling:

In a mixing bowl, beat 8 oz. of cream cheese and 3/4 cup of sugar until smooth.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract and green food coloring (optional)

Fold in 1 carton (8 ounces) of Cool Whip.

Spread evenly over brownie layer, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Remove sides from pan just before serving.

You can get creative with what you do to garnish it. More whipped cream, chocolate chips, piped chocolate, : ] whatever you want. Enjoy!
