The reviewer below is absolutely correct--this pie is NOT alcohol free. I was making a grasshopper pie for a party and wanted to make a kid-friendly one also and used this recipe. Then I checked the bottles. My peppermint extract is 86% alcohol, while the creme de menthe is 30% (the standard grasshopper recipe uses 1/4 cup creme de menthe). If you do the math, you will see that the "Baptist" pie is actually only 35% less alcohol than regular pie (insert your own Baptist joke here). I used chopped chocolate instead of creme de cacao or chocolate extract because I didn't have either, so I'm not sure how much they contribute. Additionally in a side by side tasting everyone preferred the creme de menthe pie...the peppermint extract pie was described as "toothpasty".
