If you love to drink White Russians (or as some people say "Caucasians") you will love this pie. I knew the moment I stuck my finger into the filling for a taste before completing this project that this recipe was a keeper. Try it for yourself and I promise you will love the results! I found this recipe in my new, favorite pie recipe book: Pie by Ken Haedrich. Thanks, Ken for the awesome recipe!
White Russian Pie
Graham Cracker Crust
2/3 cup granulated sugar
5 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons bourbon
1/2 cup cold, strong coffee (or whatever is sitting in your coffee pot from this morning)
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 cups cold heavy or whipping cream
2 tablespoons Kahlua or other coffee liqueur (perhaps you have some CarolAnn's sitting around? *Cough* Valerie. *Cough*)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Prepare crust, bake and cool completely. Chill in fridge.
|My version of a double-boiler|
Beat cream in medium size bowl until soft peaks form. Add Kahlua and vanilla, beat briefly. Add powdered sugar and beat again.
As soon as the custard in the fridge shows signs of thickening, remove from fridge and whisk in 1/2 cup of cream mixture until smooth. Add the remaining cream in two parts by folding the mixtures together until evenly combined. Smooth into pie shell and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Share your new pie with friends and they will all think you are the bomb.
