Frozen Mojito Pie

I’m not a good thief.

This Frozen Mojito Pie story will tell you why.

A few weeks ago I was sitting in a doctor’s waiting room, chatting with the others, looking through magazines, reading, and enjoying the “You might be suffering from XYZ” articles, and “Take ABC Drugs for only 200$ a pill”.

I then came across this photo.

What I did next is something that any of you would have done; I ripped the page off and shoved it in my purse! Quickly!

The entire ride home involved thoughts of cold Mojitos and frozen pies. Ahhh.

As soon as I arrived, I opened up my purse, took out the photo and… panic! Where’s the RECIPE?!?

All I found was an ad for Milk – no recipe!

I thought that the recipe would be on the back of the photo. (Isn’t that where they always are?)

I was so nervous to tear that page from a magazine that did not belong to me, that I did not even think to see if there was a recipe somewhere near the photo. (insert “duh” emoticon here.)

Sigh…

After a long search, and a couple of hits and misses, I found the one!

    You crack me up! I’ve “stolen” recipes on many occasions, and I always feel bad about it, but I think everyone does it. Fortunately you were able to find the actual recipe online! Looks delicious! I love mojitos 😉

  3. says

    Awwwww man…I don’t have any cream cheese or whipped topping. :( We had mojitos last night for dinner, and I’d so much love to use the rest of my mint to make this beauty. I’m bookmarking the recipe though so I can make it later. I just gotta try this! :)

  4. says

    I’ve done the same thing and then felt like a thief! I wondered if they had hidden cameras somewhere in the room and my name would be called. Talk about paranoid! :-) Some folks do this and never think about it…not me.
    Sounds delish and very much like the one I shared. :-)

    Kate, this made me laugh! You are too funny. At least you found the recipe eventually, which is a very good thing, because this mojito pie looks delicious!

  6. says

    You are too funny!!! Look at you swiping a recipe in the waiting room! I’ve been there, I admit it. What a gorgeous cake!

  7. says

    Hi Tiffany, I’m so sorry for my late comment – but I’ve been sick and I wasn’t online much this week. I saw this on Top9 and I just love the look and the taste of this cake! What a great recipe.

  8. says

    This looks superb! Mojitos are very close to our hearts because so many of the crazy good times we’ve had with our friends seem to involve them, and someone who earned herself the nickname “bucket” which We’ll leave to your imagination until we get that post up…. You shouldn’t feel too bad about the magazine page, one of us (who shall remain nameless), has been known to slip a set of restaurant cutlery that she liked in her purse; “we need it for the studio” is the operative rationale… What a terrible thing to confess, but hey we’re among friends here, right? Great recipe, can’t wait to try it!

  9. says

    Oh, my god, I would be the same. I would take the time to write down the recipe or something. Anyways, those pics are gorgeous. Such a refreshing summer dessert with delicious mint!

  10. says

    What a great story – I think every foodie that has ever sat in a doctor’s office can relate! Meanwhile, is the first picture your version?! Wow, gorgeous!! ( I have to admit I smiled coming across this given my current post).
    Cheers, k.

  11. says

    I’m sorry I didn’t stop by yesterday to wish you a big congrats on making top 9! This pie looks wonderful and you know I love those no-bake pies. : ) You did a great job and it’s okay you’re not a good thief.. that’s a good thing. The story had me laughing out loud… it sounds like something I would do too. You’re pictures are fabulous as always! ~Ramona

  12. says

    This pie is so genius! The pretzel crust sounds so good with the filling. I am so happy you didn’t give up when you realized that you didn’t have the recipe! Photos are gorgeous too.

  13. says

    Hi Kate! OMG OMG OMG. YUM! I was cracking up about the “tearing the recipe out of the magazine” comment! I’ve totally done that before, funny how you feel like such a criminal. Totally worth tearing out, I wish you could send me a piece! Congrats on Top 9!

  14. says

    Wow. This looks amazing. I can see why you tore it out of the magazine at the doctor’s office. I’ve done the same thing myself when its been this tantalizing. I have to try it! Thanks for linking us the recipe and congrats on your top 9!

  15. says

    Happy to hear you’ve found the right recipe eventually, cuz this looks spectacular! I know a couple of Mohito fans that would worship me forever if I made this! Thanks for sharing and have a nice day :)

  16. says

    This is great! Great because I did this recently in a doctor’s waiting room, too. :) I love that I’m not the only one. This recipe looks ridiculously delicious…how perfect for the warming weather! And a perfect excuse to enjoy a mojito at the same time! :)

  17. says

    Hahahaha…who never stole a recipe from a doctors office magazine through the first stone. The pie looks fantastic, it sounds delicious. Totally worth the “Misdemeanor”. LOL

  18. says

    Bravo, bravo, BRAVO!!!!

    This looks absolutely amazing. Major drooling over here.

    Thanks for another lovely post and absolutely CONGRATS on Top 9 – very well deserved!!

    P.S. Your photography is LOVELY!!!

  19. says

    Ha, I’ve done that and felt so guilty too! Saw your recipe on Foodbeast and commented, but also want to congratulate you on Top 9! Gorgeous photos.!!! And love the recipe. A summer delight. Extra mint for me too, please.

  20. says

    I can so relate!! Sometimes I hesitate to open those magazines just so I’m not tempted!!! And this one I would love to have stolen as it sounds perfect for the summer months!

  21. says

    Great recipe and lovely photos! I’m totally guilty of the occasional page rip from a magazine that doesn’t belong to me…sometimes you just have to do it! The mojito is one of the best, most refreshing cocktails ever…so making a pie out of it is just genius!

  22. says

    I love the pictures of this! Absolutely beautiful! Congratulations on your foodbuzz top 9 today! Well deserved! I’m thinking I need to try mojitos, now…in any form, really..but I assume cake is a good place to start. haha! Enjoy the day!

    Nice looking recipe,
    But I can’t say “how nice or funny of you to rip off a page from a magazine”…
    Because I’m reminded of how a classmate rips off a page from a library book and I told her she shouldn’t do that and she looks at me as if I’m the biggest idiot in the world.

    Is this really something you want to pass on to your daughter?
    Sigh whatever, I’m pretty sure this message would get deleted anyway so why do I even bother?
    Oh and congratulations on top 9.

  24. says

    Hi Kate
    what an outstanding pie to share with us ! with the heat we are having I could certainly use a slice or two to cool me off!
    Congrats on the top 9 today!

    I think almost all of us have seen someone take a recipe out of a magazine in the doc’s office or did it.. so funny.. great shot of this pie love the angle … looks wonderfully light and delicious!

  26. says

    LOLOLOL!!! Been there, done that! Amy tends to sneak the magazine from the main waiting room into the actual doctor’s office and then rip the page out when no one’s around. That pie would have definitely ended up in her purse as well! Thanks for sharing.

  27. says

    You are so so funny :-) The mojito pie looks delicious, beautiful! I like the pretzel crumb crust as well. Have a wonderful week Kate!

  28. says

    OMG this is so funny. I usually just steal the whole magazine from my doctor’s office! 😉
    The pie is just gorgeous, totally caught my eye on Tasteologie this morning.

  29. says

    Too funny! I was getting my oil changed the other day and I saw 2 recipes I wanted. I was too scared to rip out the pages, so I got out my phone and tried to take pic! Not exactly in focus, but hopefully it will help when I get around to making it!

    Yum – Mojito’s!

  30. says

    You are too cute! At least you only took a page, I’ve heard that some people take the whole magazine, so I wouldn’t feel so bad =)

    Now this pie… I could definitely use a slice of this. Especially with all the heat coming in =)

  31. says

    This is a wonderful dessert for the warm weather, that we’re finally having. I love the pretzel crust. Your photos are gorgeous. I will probably add some rum to this pie:)

  32. says

    I saw the photo of this on FB yesterday and was already impressed…this pie is beautiful, and sounds amazing! Love mojitos, great idea to make the flavors into a delicious pie!

  33. says

    That is hilarious! I usually snap a photo of the recipe with my phone in that kind of situation because I’d feel guilty, too. :) I’m glad you eventually found the recipe. It looks delicious.

  34. says

    I’m happy you got to locate the recipe after all! The yellow doily is super cute, and that mojito is giving me evil ideas. Thank goodness for long weekends!

  35. says

    I’ve totally done that in offices before! I once even stole the whole magazine because there was more than one recipe I wanted! I saw this on fb the other day and was highly anticipating the final product.. it sounds fabulous.

  36. says

    Such a funny story. Many times I have seen recipes I wanted to try and thought I knew the recipe or taken it with me only to have misplaced it or not gotten the full thing. I then spend literally hours trying to find the whole thing over again. Ahh, what we do for a good recipe!

    Oh and I am sitting in my apartment sweating with 90 degree temps and that pie looks lovely!

  37. says

    LOL 😀 That is so funny & sounds like something that would happen to me! But that pie is absolutely gorgeous and I can totally understand the need… You have made one beautiful pie… Thanks for sharing :) Will go check out the recipe now…

  38. says

    I can’t even try to steal recipes out of magazines while at dr. offices because I usually have 1 or more kids with me so everyone is already watching my every move…I’m such a spectacle with 4 kids…anyway….if I see something I need….I make my kids go ask the receptionist if they can tear the page out of the magazine.

  39. says

    LOL! That’s just the kind of thing that would happen to me, too. It looks like you achieved a near clone of the photo, though. What a fabulous looking dessert!

  40. says

    Hilarious! I remember I did that in a dentist’s office once. I was so paranoid after that. LOL! This looks remarkable! And perfect for a hot day!

  41. says

    Ha! That is so funny – I am not a good thief either, I would have been too scared to check and see if I had the recipe. Even though I am not a huge sweets person, the idea of a delicious beverage like this turned into a pie … well, it’s really got me thinking too!
