Coffee Cheesecake Pie

You all know I'm such a coffee lover so when Community Coffee asked if I'd like to share this scrumptious Coffee Cheesecake Pie recipe I was more than happy to oblige!  This pie features coffee and a yummy chocolate wafer crust, it can be made ahead of time so there’s no last-minute frosting, garnishing or fussing. It’s entertaining made easy!

Ingredients are as follows: 

1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs (from about 20 wafers) or graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ cup bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons strongly-brewed Community® coffee
2 (8-ounce) packages Neufchatel cheese, softened
½ cup sugar
⅓ cup strongly-brewed Community® coffee, cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. To make crust, combine wafer crumbs and 2 tablespoons sugar.  Add butter and thoroughly mix.  Place in 9-inch pie pan sprayed with vegetable cooking spray; evenly press up sides and over bottom.  Refrigerate until ready to fill.

3. In small microwave-safe measuring cup or bowl, place chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons coffee.  Heat coffee to a simmer in microwave; do not boil.  Stir until completely smooth.  Set aside to cool.

4. In a large mixing bowl, beat Neufchatel cheese and ½ cup sugar until smooth. 

5. Add ⅓ cup coffee and vanilla; mix until combined and smooth. 

6. Add eggs 1 at a time, mixing on low speed and scraping bowl after each until blended. Pour over reserved crust. 

7. Drizzle reserved coffee mixture all over filling; gently swirl with a knife tip. 

10. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until center is almost set. Let cool completely. 

11. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.  Cut into 8 slices, serve and enjoy!
