This 6th day of September commemorates a food holiday referred to as the National Coffee Ice Cream Day. How fabulous that we can enjoy two of our favorite things together on this special day. Coffee and ice cream! Wow!

This is a cool, frosty dessert that grownups and coffee lovers will simply fall in love with. A few ingredients and in a very short time a new and delicious, creamy just refreshing pie will be created by your own hand.

Ingredients:

Crust: • 30 chocolate wafers (crushed) • ½ cup of softened butter
• 1/3 cup of finely chopped macadamia nuts
• ¼ cup of flaked coconut

Filling: • 1 quart slightly softened coffee flavored ice cream • 6 tablespoons of coffee flavored liqueur • Topping:
• 1 cup of hot fudge sundae sauce
• 1 handful of whole macadamia nuts

Directions:

Crust: 1. In a large mixing bowl add the crushed chocolate wafers, coconut, chopped nuts and butter.
2. Mix the ingredients well and press into a pie pan that is either 8 or 9 inches in diameter.
3. Place the pie pan into the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to chill and firm up a little.

Filling:
1. Transfer the slightly softened ice cream into a large mixing bowl.
2. Add the coffee flavored liquor and mix well. Do this quickly so the ice cream does not melt too much.

Prepare completed pie: 1. Spoon the coffee-coffee ice cream into the pie pan over the crust. 2. Cover pie with plastic wrap and place in the freezer to harden. 3. Allow coffee ice cream liqueur pie to set in freezer for at least 2 hours or until pie is plenty firm. 4. When ready to serve remove pie from freezer and drizzle hot fudge sundae sauce over the top. 5. Sprinkle with whole macadamia nuts and adorn your table with this cool delight.
6. Slice pie as you would any other pie and serve your family, friends or guests.
7. Enjoy!

Suggestions:

• Flaked coconut is optional. The pie crust will be just as good without it. • Save time and buy a premade chocolate graham cracker crust. • Any nut will do, the best results noticed are with macadamia, cashews and almonds. • Another topping option is to sprinkle a few coffee flavored coffee beans or jelly beans on top of the pie. • Add a few white chocolate – chocolate chips on top of the hot fudge sundae sauce to add an extra sweet bite and bring some color contrast to the pie top. • If children are going to be served it might be best to leave out the liqueur. Leave it in when only adults will be served. • Kahlua can also be substituted if your favorite coffee flavored liqueur is not available or on hand.
• With any frozen ice cream cake or pie, removed from freezer 10-15 minutes before serving. It will make slicing the pie so much easier.
• Of course, a topping of whipped cream will add to the look and taste of this dessert.
