Reviews for Irish Coffee Pie
"Used store-bought graham cracker pie crust. Put a layer of Carol Hanihan's "Rich Hot Fudge Sauce" recipe from TOH site in the bottom of the crust. Replaced half of the water with coffee liqueur and did not use the whiskey. It was a big hit."
"Great recipe, easy to follow, easy to make! I sprinkled extra coffee granules on the top to dust for decor and substituted rum-flavored extract for the whiskey for a good flavor substitution. Thanks!"
"Very good and EASY! Will certainly be a St. Paddy's Day staple!"
"Thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I used espresso powder, but that was a personal preference. Very good, thank you for sharing."
"Big hit at St. Patrick's Day dinner. I doubled the whole recipe and put in 9 x 13 pan. I did add a bit more coffee. Next time, I'll drizzle chocolate on top."
