Mini Mint Chocolate Chip Pies

Mint Chocolate Chip Mini Mascarpone Pies

  • 6 individual, ready-made, graham cracker pie crusts
  • 8 ounces Mascarpone cheese (or cream cheese)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
  • 1 tablespoon fresh, chopped mint, plus extra sprigs for garnish
  • a few drops of green gel food coloring
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Set the pie crusts on a tray.  In a mixing bowl, combine the Mascarpone cheese, whipping cream, powdered sugar, mint extract, mint and green food coloring.  Whip with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth and combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips.

Spoon the filling into each of the pie crusts, and garnish with mint and a sprinkling of chocolate chips.

The pies can be eaten right away, or refrigerated until ready to serve.

Cook's Note:  To make a full standard-sized pie, simply double all of the filling ingredients and spoon filling into a standard graham cracker pie crust.

Yields 6 servings.
