Merry Christmas!

For unto us a child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government shall be upon His shoulder.
And His name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 (NKJV)

Grasshopper Pie Recipe

Grasshopper Pie

  • 16 finely crushed Oreo Cookies
  • 1/2 stick of Butter

  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mint Extract
  • Green Food Coloring
  • 1 cup Whipping Cream

To make the crust: Melt the butter and combine with the finely crushed oreos. Gently pat into a pie dish. Bake for 8 minutes at 375 degrees.
To make the filling: In a heavy sauce pan, combine the sugar cornstarch and salt. Stir in 1 1/4 cups milk and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute and then remove from heat. In a small bowl, beat together egg yolks and 1/2 cup milk. Slowly stir this into the hot custard. Return to heat and cook 2 minutes stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and add 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract and a few drops of green food coloring. Cover the custard with a lid or plastic wrap. Add cold water to a large bowl or sink and place the pan with the custard in the cold water to cool (do not let it cool too long or it will be lumpy).

In a bowl beat the whipping cream until fluffy.

Fold the whipped cream into the cooled custard mixture.

Pour the custard into the pie crust and chill for 2-4 hours.
Top the pie with whip cream and decorate with sprinkles or add crumbled cookies to the top.

"The Gingerbread Man's Christmas" Puppet Show at the Puppetry Arts Institute

Come see "The Gingerbread Man's Christmas" puppet show at the Puppetry Arts Institute on Saturday 12/15/12 or Saturday 12/22/12.

Parasol Puppets adds a Holiday twist to a classic tale with this hand puppet show. When Mrs. Claus bakes a special cookie for Santa, the Gingerbread Man decides that he doesn’t want to get eaten! He hops off of the cookie sheet and begins his sing-a-long adventure. Unlike the original story, in this version everyone lives happily ever after. Admission includes a tour of the puppet museum. Finger puppets of characters from the show will be available at the front desk for $1.00 after the show.
