I've made this pie for as long as I can remember. If you like Mocha Frappe's you will love this pie. I add a layer of Ganache before adding the filling...my son doesn't like coffee, but he just loves this pie...this recipe is for a 7 inch pie...it serves 4 larger or 6 small pieces...I hope you'll give it a try...enjoy!

graham cracker crumbs
2 Tbsp
melted, butter
2 Tbsp
sugar

FILLING

4 oz
cream cheese, softened
1/4 c
sugar
1/4 c
water
2 tsp
instant coffee granules
1 - 8 oz
cool whip, thawed
1 Tbsp
whiskey, optional - i didn't use
1 tsp
vanilla, if not using whiskey

GANACHE

1/2 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
about 1 Tbsp
corn syrup
1 1/2 Tbsp
cream

NOTE: THIS COULD EASILY BE DOUBLED FOR A LARGER PIE..

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 375 degree F.

Combine the cracker crumbs, sugar and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 7 in. pie plate.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
2While crust cools, make Ganache.

In a microwave safe bowl, add Ganache ingredients, microwave for about 30 second, stir. If needs more melting, place back in microwave for a few more seconds.
3Spread Ganache evenly onto the crust. Set aside.
4Make filling:

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Combine the water, whiskey or vanilla if desired and coffee granules; beat into cream cheese mixture until smooth.
5Fold in whipped topping.
6Spoon into crust. I then grated some chocolate on top. Totally optional...I have also in the past grated a few Andes mints on the top.

Enjoy!
