chocolate coffee pie with kahlua and cream by joanie

I'm proud to say this pie won "Best Pie" at my work's Pi(e) Day event. It could be that it was also the only pie with alcohol...


  • Crust:
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground coffee
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 6 tbsp cold butter
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream
  • Filling:
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua
  • 1 tbsp milk or cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp ground coffee
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Topping:
  • whipped cream
  • sprinkles
1 pie


To make the pie crust, cut the flour, powdered sugar, coffee, salt, and butter with a pastry cutter until well-incorporated. (Or put the flour, powdered sugar, coffee, salt, and butter into a food processor and pulse just until combined.)

Slowly drizzle in the milk. Right when the dough comes together, form it into a ball. (If the dough doesn't come together, add a little more milk.)

Turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface and shape it into a flat disk.

Place in a food storage container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350º.

Now for the filling! Beat together the butter, sugar, and salt until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, beating enough to incorporate but not add air. Add in the the cocoa, Kahlua, milk, and vanilla.

Using a food processor (mini, ideally), grind together the cornmeal, coffee, and chocolate chips. Add it to the batter and mix well. Set aside.

Flour your work surface, and roll the dough into a 12" circle. Transfer the dough to a regular (not deep-dish) 9" pie pan that's at least 1 ¼" deep. Trim and crimp the edges.

Pour the batter into the crust.

Bake the pie for 45 minutes on the middle rack. If the crust starts to brown too much, shield it with some foil.

Remove the pie from the oven and cool to room temperature before topping with whipped cream. Finish with sprinkles.
