Green Mint Pie Recipe

1 cup confection sugar
1-8 oz. package cream cheese
2 cups cool whip
1/4 teaspoon mint flavoring
4 drops of green food coloring

Bring cream cheese to room temperature. Mix with sugar and cool whip in a food processor or blender. Divide and top chocolate pies. Allow pies to chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

From Nutritionist: The sugar in the pies is not recommended for diabetics. The pies are considered in the carbohydrate category and should be counted as such. For a complete menu: The dessert can be served with vegetable soup that has ground beef. The soup would provide the vitamins and minerals needed. The ground beef would provide the protein needed for a well balanced meal. Remember any leftovers can be placed in air-tight storage containers. They may be saved for a rainy/busy day meal or taken to shut-ins. Happy remembering Ireland Day!
