Irish Coffee Cream Pie


  • Crust:
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Filling:
  • 1 package unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 tablespoons strong coffee or espresso
  • 3 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Irish whiskey
  • 6 tablespoons Kahlua
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • chocolate, shaved, for garnish


  • Crust: Preheat oven to 375F. Combine crumbs and butter in small bowl. Press into 9" pie plate. Bake until set, about 8 minutes. Cool completely.
  • Filling: Dissolve gelatin in cold water and heat briefly to completely dissolve. Cool. Add coffee to gelatin mixture and stir. Mix gelatin and coffee mixture with the remaining ingredients, except the 1 cup whipping cream and chocolate shavings, and beat on medium speed until mixture holds peaks. Pour into cooled crust. Whip the remaining 1 cup of whipping cream and "frost" the top of the pie. Garnish with chocolate shavings before serving.
