DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the sugar and egg yolks in the top of a double boiler over barely simmering water.
  • Heat the mixture, whisking constantly, until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 7-8 minutes.
  • Remove pan from heat; whisk in bourbon; remove insert from the double boiler and set the custard aside to cool.
  • When the custard has cooled, pour the coffee into a small bowl; sprinkle the gelatin over the coffee; set aside for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the coffee mixture to a small saucepan and gently heat, whisking until the gelatin has dissolved, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and gradually whisk into the custard mixture.
  • Scrape the custard into a large bowl and refrigerate, whisking every few minutes.
  • As soon as you refrigerate the custard, using a chilled bowl and chilled beaters, beat the cream using an electric mixer, until soft peaks form.
  • Add in the Kahlua and vanilla and beat briefly.
  • Add in the powdered sugar and beat briefly again, until stiff but not grainy.
  • As soon as the refrigerated custard shows signs of thickening, remove it from the refrigerator and whisk in about 1/2 cup of the whipped cream until smooth.
  • Add the remaining whipped cream in 2 parts, gently folding the mixtures together until evenly combined.
  • Transfer the filling into the chilled pie shell, smoothing the top.
  • Cover with loosely tented foil and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Garnish with chocolate-covered coffee beans before serving.
