Meh. No really. Meh. Taste=strange. Texture=strange. Visuals=nothing special. I have enjoyed Grasshopper Pie when I've had it before. But this. I don't know. The recipe is from the same book as the Irish Cream Pie I made a while back. Same use of gelatin. Which I'm just not sure of. I don't think I like the texture it produces. Is it because I'm using powdered gelatin? Does anyone have any experience using gelatin sheets? I did like the crust made from Thin Mint cookies, but that was pretty much the only part that is a keeper at all. I would say that I'd try to come up with my own version without the gelatin, but I don't know that I like Grasshopper Pie THAT much. And I have other recipes to try...so. Onward and upward.
TGIP Rating--Grasshopper Pie--LOSER. Just really not worth the time/effort/calories.
Next up: I have a passel of zucchini and no household members who like it (except in bread and cake). So that's what I'm doing. Chocolate Zucchini Cake. And probably also some kind of Zucchini Bread. If you have a killer recipe, send it!
