Frozen Coffee-Fudge Pie

Dunnski made this pie for our 4th of July cookout. O to the M to the G. It was FANTASTIC. Btw, ladies, have I mentioned he is a wonderful cook?? Mmm, mmm, mmm!
The recipe is below, if you want, you can substitute the homemade crust for a store bought chocolate Oreo crust. Makes it even easier! We found the coffee beans at a local coffee store, they really topped it off nicely. Enjoy and let us know what you think!

For Crust:

1 cup packaged chocolate cookie crumbs (such as Oreo)
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, melted
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
Cooking spray

For Filling:

2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
1 tablespoon boiling water
3/4 cup fat-free hot fudge topping (such as Smucker's), divided
4 cups low-fat coffee ice cream (such as Starbucks Low Fat Latte)
9 chocolate-covered coffee beans (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

TO PREPARE CRUST: Combine first 3 ingredients, and toss with a fork until moist. Press into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Place crust in freezer.

TO PREPARE FILLING: Place a large bowl in freezer. Combine coffee granules and boiling water in a small bowl; stir until coffee dissolves. Add 3 tablespoons fudge topping; stir well. Set aside.

Spoon ice cream into chilled bowl, and stir in fudge topping mixture. Spoon ice cream mixture into chilled crust; freeze 30 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze 4 hours or until set. Place pie in refrigerator 20 minutes before serving to soften. Serve pie with 9 tablespoons fudge topping, and garnish with coffee beans, if desired.

Serving size: 1 wedge and 1 tablespoon fudge topping
