But when making pies and Cheesecakes, they are my favorite ingredients.
Today I introduce to you, an easy way of making Kahlua cream pie. No oven is needed, no hard work is needed. 15-20 minutes is needed to prepare and put the pie together. Then three hours later, pie heaven!
Easy No Bake Kahlua Cream Pie
44 chocolate Oreo cookies, creme removed, divided
8 tbsp. Butter, melted
2 tbsp. Sugar, do iced
Pinch of salt
8 oz. Bittersweet chocolate, chopped into pieces
3/4 tsp. Powdered gelatin
7 tbsp. Kahlua
3 1/3 c. Heavy cream, chilled, divided
Ground 36 cookies until finely ground. Place crumbs in a bowl and stir in the melted butter, 1 teaspoon sugar and 2 teaspoons of water until thoroughly moistened. Firmly press into the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan. Then finely ground the remaining cookies and set aside.
Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl and melt chocolate over a simmering pan of water, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat.
In another bowl, add 1 teaspoon water and sprinkle gelatin on the top. Let sit for 5 minutes to soften. Then heat in the microwave to melt, about 10-20 seconds.
Whisk 6 tablespoons of Kahlua into the melted chocolate. Then add the gelatin. Whisk until thoroughly combined and smooth.
Whip 2 1/3 cups of the heavy cream with 1 tablespoon sugar to medium peaks. Fold cream into the chocolate mixture in 3 separate batches until thoroughly combined. Gently fold in the remaining cookie crumbs that was set aside. Pour into pie shell and chill to set, about 3 hours
Whip remaining cup of heavy cream with remaining sugar to soft peaks. Fold in remaining Kahlua. Serve a dollop on each slice of pie. Enjoy!
