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)

Casting Crowns: While You Were Sleeping (Video)

One of our very favorite Christmas albums is Peace on Earth by Casting Crowns. I wanted to share our favorite song "While You Were Sleeping" with you tonight on Christmas Eve.

(If you are reading in an RSS feed or e-mail click here to see the video.)
"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

Romans 12:2

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.
