MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 3, 2009

The pie is terrible if you use 2 Tablespoons! I think 2 teaspoons would be much more appropriate.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2008

I believe there was a typographical error in this recipe. The coffee flavor severely overpowers everything else! I think the recipe meant to call for 2 teaspoons of instant coffee-- NOT 2 Tablespoons. It's also very important to allow the pie to chill for 2+ hours, before serving.
