For as long as I can remember, I’ve always looked forward to Girl Scout Season for one simple reason: Thin Mints. Although they aren’t the most sophisticated of cookies, they remind me of my dad and his lifelong love affair with these crisp, chocolate bites of minty goodness. I remember him ordering huge quantities of cookies and shoving our freezer full of those green boxes.

When we were kids, Jared and I much preferred the peanut butter sandwich cookies and could easily polish off an entire box in one afternoon. In fact, those Do-si-dos are one of the only ways that I am able to down milk without it being poured on cereal.

As I grew older, my tastes sophisticated (hah!) and chocolate with mint has become one of my favorite ways to enjoy chocolate. So when my co-worker presented me his daughter’s Girl Scout order form, I took a cue from my dad and decided to stock pile some Thin Mints in hopes of using them as a base for a few desserts here on MBA. Yeah, I’m pretty certain that I bought more than I’ll actually incorporate into baked goods, but it’s pretty easy to write a check when it means support for a good cause. I’ve actually tried it hide the remaining cookies from myself, but that’s not working out so well… I can’t imagine why!

This pie truly couldn’t be more simple. It’s a no bake recipe, which is always a bonus when a weekday craving hits. This Thin Mint Pie recipe starts out with a Thin Mint crust which is a seriously amazing foundation for a layer of cream cheese filling that is brimming with chopped Thin Mint Cookies. Top each slice with a dollop of whipped cream a few more cookie crumbs and you’ll be well on your way to enjoying a slice of minty bliss.

    This looks delicious- we have a similar cookie pie, but instead of using girl scout thin mints for the crust, we use a butter cookie crust and then the topping is a layer of thin mint cream. Still, will have to try this recipe to compare- thanks for sharing!

    As a Girl Scout leader we always have lots of Thin Mints around during cookie season. I have made Thin Mint brownies adding half a box of Thin Mints crushed up into a box brownie mix. Can’t wait to try this recipe!!

    Oh gosh..I’m drooling! I LOVVEEE chocolate and mint! Thin mints have always been held quite close to my heart, too :)

    You have absolutely no idea how happy you just made me. Anything that involves thin mints, cream cheese, AND coolwhip must be heavenly.

  7. Shaina says:

    Love that you made these into a pie. Love it!

    I made this pie Sunday. I only had enough thin mints to put them in the ‘pie part’ so I used oreo cookies for the crust. This pie is amazing! My husband and I both love it. Thank you for the recipe!
