I'm a big coffee drinker and love the iced and frozen versions, too. This pie was my way of incorporating those flavors into a dessert. —Becky McClaflin, Blanchard, Oklahoma

"Amazing!!! My husband and co-workers went on and on about it. I did make my own whipped cream as we prefer it over cool whip. I also made from scratch chocolate pudding. We like a stronger chocolate flavor so I used extra instant coffee in the cream cheese mixture and then needed more sugar as well. I had no Kahlua so just used vanilla. I will be making several for a church event next week and will use the cool whip and boxed pudding to save time. It will still be fabulous."

"I finally got around to making this . It is very tastey. The only thing I changed was I didn't use Kaluha it was too expensive for a one time use. I added a little Mocha flavoring to the whipping cream. It's a very light and not real sweet I will definitely make this again"

"I never have instant coffee in the house. What kind of substitution could I make using regular ground coffee? Has anyone tried it? This recipe sounds SO delicious ~ I'm anxious to try it! (I didn't want to rate without making, but the site won't let me post this question without adding a rating ~ sorry!)"
