This is the twin of Brandy Alexander Pie both very much desserts of the 70s.  They have basically the same ingredients, but this one has creme de menthe instead of brandy.  Mum cut both recipes out, probably because I’d told her about making them for dinner parties for our friends.  I haven’t heard of anyone making them for a long, long time now though………………..

Grasshopper Pie 1


This is very much a dessert from the 70s.  Brandy Alexander Pie together with its twin  Grasshopper Pie were all the fashion back then.  They are basically the same recipe but this one has brandy and creme de cacao and the other has creme de menthe and creme de cacao.  I liked this one, but I think you can see why they both went out of favor.
