Kona Coffee Bean Cream Pie – Pure Kona Coffee

Kona Coffee Cream Pie Ingredients:

Kona Cream Pie Directions

  1. Whisk together granulated sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a medium saucepan. Whisk in milk and 2 Kona coffee k cups, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until bubbling and thick, about 7 minutes (about 2 minutes after it comes to a boil).

  2. Whisk egg yolks in a medium bowl until combined. Whisk in milk mixture in a slow, steady stream until completely incorporated. Return mixture to saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, just until it returns to a boil, 1 to 2 minutes.

  3. Strain through a fine sieve into a large bowl, and stir in coffee liqueur and vanilla. Add butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking until each piece melts before adding the next one. Let custard cool, whisking occasionally, about 10 minutes.

  4. Pour custard into baked and cooled crust. Press plastic wrap directly on surface of custard. Refrigerate until filling is firm, 4 hours (or wrapped tightly with plastic, up to 1 day).

  5. With the flat side of a chef’s knife, crush dark chocolate-covered Kona coffee beans, 1 at a time. Reserve 1 tablespoon large pieces for garnish.

  6. In a chilled bowl, beat cream, confectioners’ sugar, and remaining 1 Kona coffee K-cup until stiff peaks form. Fold small Kona-bean pieces into whipped cream mixture, and spread over pie. Sprinkle with reserved Kona-bean pieces or chocolate curls, and serve immediately.

 Kona Coffee Cream Pie Cook’s Notes

The Kona Coffee K-cups and Kahlua Coffee liqueur add rich undertones to the flavor of this pie, but omit the dark chocolate-covered Kona coffee beans, as Martha did on episode 507 of Martha Bakes, for a smoother version of the pie and decorate using chocolate curls instead.
