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!

How to Make Irish Coffee Pie W/ Chocolate Ganache

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat 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.
  2. While 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.
  3. Spread Ganache evenly onto the crust. Set aside.
  4. Make 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.
  5. Fold in whipped topping.
  6. Spoon 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!
