Chocolate Mint Cream Pie Oh My!

I made this pie for Christmas dinner and it was awesome! It is a thick creamy pie with wonderful flavor, so much better than anything you can buy in the store. It is worth the time to make it. Let's just say it went quickly!

Chocolate Mint Cream Pie

24 chocolate sandwich cookies
1/4 melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 package chocolate mint chips
2 egg yolks
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

Put the sandwich cookies in a food processor and process into crumbs. Mix the melted butter into the crumbs and press the mixture into a pie pan. Chill the crust for an hour.

In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Gradually stir in milk until well blended. Add chocolate chips and egg yolks; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat. Beat in cream cheese with wire whisk until smooth. Cover surface with plastic wrap; refrigerate just until cool, about 1 hour.

In large bowl with electric mixer, beat whipping cream and vanilla on high speed until soft peaks form. Reserve 1 cup whipped cream for topping. Fold remaining whipped cream into cooled chocolate mixture. Spoon evenly into cooled baked shell. Refrigerate 6 to 8 hours or overnight. Spoon or pipe reserved whipped cream over filling. Store in refrigerator. I shredded some chocolate on the pie before serving, I just used a chocolate bar that I had. You can also use cookie crumbs too.
