    Categories: Chocolate, Dairy, Pies, Booze
    Yield: 6 servings

    MMMMM-------------------CHOCOLATE COOKIE CRUST------------------------
    25 Chocolate wafer (Oreo)
    5 tb Melted butter

    MMMMM-------------------BAVARIAN CREAM FILLING------------------------
    3/4 c Water
    1 ts Peppermint extract
    1 1/2 tb Gelatin
    7 Egg yolks
    1 c Granulated sugar
    2 ts Cornstarch
    1 1/2 c Milk
    5 Egg whites
    pn Salt
    1 tb Sugar
    1/2 c Heavy whipping cream
    1 c Whipping cream; chilled
    1 tb Creme de menthe
    1 tb Sugar
    1 ts Vanilla
    Peppermints, crushed and
    - whole

    CRUST: Pulse cookies in food processor. Mix with melted
    butter in medium bowl. Press into a 9" pie plate with
    the back of a spoon and refrigerate.

    BAVARIAN CREAM FILLING: Combine water and peppermint
    extract. Sprinkle gelatin over mixture and set aside to

    Beat egg yolks and sugar for 2-3 minutes until mixture
    is pale yellow and forms the ribbon. Beat in cornstarch.

    Bring milk to a boil over medium heat (slowly) ensuring
    it does not burn.

    Beat the milk by droplets into the egg yolks. Pour back
    into sauce pan and set over medium heat. Stir with a
    wooden spoon until mixture thickens enough to coat spoon
    lightly. Be careful not to overheat or cook too quickly
    and risk scrambling the eggs. Remove from heat and add
    gelatin, stirring to dissolve completely.

    Beat the egg whites and salt until soft peaks form.
    Sprinkle one tablespoon of sugar and beat until stiff
    peaks are formed. Using a rubber spatula, fold egg
    whites into custard.

    Set mixture over a bowl of ice and fold delicately with
    spatula often while it is cooling to prevent separation.

    Meanwhile, beat 1/2 cup heavy cream until doubled in
    volume. Add creme de menthe. Fold into completely cold

    Spoon over crust. Set in fridge to firm up.

    Beat remaining 1 cup of heavy cream, tablespoon of
    sugar, and vanilla until medium peaks form (not too
    stiff or it will not pipe well). Pipe onto set pie and
    top with peppermints.
