Confession: The apron I made this month was a bit of a nightmare, so I made the pie for St. Patrick’s Day and didn’t finish the apron until…about an hour ago. It was the Cottage Apron from the book One-Yard Wonders, which is a cute book with barely-there instructions. Seriously, if you don’t already know how to do things like make darts (which I didn’t), this is a tough one to finish. I wasn’t thrilled with the directions, but the apron is pretty cute once you get there.

The pie recipe I settled on is The Pioneer Woman’s recent Grasshopper Pie recipe. I’ve known since I started this pie project that I wanted to use Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies in a St. Patrick’s Day minty pie. This was because I’d bought yards of Girl Scout cookie fabric last year with no idea what to do with it. I wanted to stash-bust that Thin Mint fabric into an apron. And I did. And the pie was yummy, but not Adam’s favorite thing. Understandable, it has a weirdly sweet and strange taste that makes me think of childhood. And toothpaste. It’s very 50s, very retro, and fabulous in an Ambrosia salad kind of way.

Here’s what you’ll need:

For the pie:
1 box of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies
2 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
24 whole Large Marshmallows (or Container Of Marshmallow Fluff)
? cups Half-and-half
2 Tablespoons Creme De Menthe Liqueur (more To Taste)
2 Tablespoons Creme De Cacao Liqueur
Drop Or Two Of Green Food Coloring
1 cup Heavy Cream
Extra Cookie Crumbs, For Sprinkling

For the apron:
One-Yard Wonders by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins
1 yard of fabric for the apron
1 yard of fabric OR 2″ wide ribbon for the straps
1 pack of 1/2″ single fold white bias tape (I’m still using up my Christmas Apron 2006 stash)
