This recipe was adapted from one I found in a Family Circle magazine. I made a few changes to make it my own, and the taste and look of the recipe was very well accepted by my friends and family. The original pie was in a pie pan. I used a spring form pan, and made a few other changes.
My family really loved it. So it is family approved

  6. In a separate clean bowl, beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the cream into the cooled chocolate mixture. Fold in the pears.
  7. Spoon mixture into the cooled pie crust. To the extra creamy cool whip add the 1 1/2 teaspoons of coffee liqueur, and stir till mixed.

    Spread over top of pie.
