Recipe for GRASSHOPPER PIE from Mrs. Rowes Little Book of Southern Pies by Mollie Cox Bryan... This is the pie version of the grasshopper cocktail, a sweet and mint after-dinner drink that was popular in the South throughout the 1950s and 1960s. This pie is certainly from another era (marshmallows and green food coloring?), but the combination of chocolate and mint is undoubtedly delicious. This is also a wonderful summer dessert since it requires very little stove and oven time.
