No-Bake Mint Pie with Oreo Crust and Crumble Topping

When I make any of my mom’s classic holiday desserts I’m transported back to sitting at the holiday table in my childhood home.  This mint pie is one of those desserts.  My sister and I share a love of anything mint flavored and is probably why we still enjoy this pie today.  The green color of the mint marshmallow filling is perfect for the festive holiday table.  I made a homemade Oreo crust (steps provided below) but you can easily purchase a pre-made Oreo crust to speed up your pie making process.  As seen below my kitchen helper enjoyed crushing the Oreos in the food processor, so even though the homemade crust added time, it was worth giving him the experience.  I hope you enjoy this easy, no-bake holiday pie as much as I do.
