Thin Mint Pie

What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie? Hands down, my favorite is Thin Mint. I remember when I was a Girl Scout, I participated in several cookie drives. It seems like everyone liked to buy Thin Mint cookies. I could hardly keep them in stock at our cookie stand. I loved putting these cookies in the freezer and then eat them cold. Yum! In celebration of the Girl Scouts Cookie Program we would like to feature a recipe made with the Thin Mint cookies. I can't think of a better way to start off the week then with this yummy dessert.
