  • 1 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup(s) cornstarch
  • 2 shots of espresso
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 3 1/4cup(s) whole milk
  • Yolks from 3 large eggs lightly beaten in a small bowl with 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 ounce(s) unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter

1 shot of espresso = 1/8 cup extremely strong  coffee

Topping & Decorations:

  • Sweetened whipped cream or whipped topping
  • Chocolate curls (directions follow)
  • Candy hearts (directions follow)

Directions

  1. Coat a 9-in. pie plate with nonstick spray. Lightly flour disk and rolling pin. Roll dough on a sheet of wax paper into a 12 1/2-in. circle. Trim to 12 in.; discard trimmings. Place a floured hand on dough, invert (still on wax paper) onto hand and position dough over pie plate. Gently ease into plate, pressing dough against bottom and sides; carefully peel off paper. Fold edge under so it’s slightly higher than side of plate; crimp edge. Freeze 15 minutes until firm.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F. Prick bottom of crust all over with a fork. Line with nonstick foil, then fill with pie weights or dried beans (see Note). Bake 20 minutes. Carefully lift out foil and weights and bake 15 minutes more, or until crust is cooked through and set. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  3. Make Mocha Latte Filling: In a heavy 3-qt saucepan, using a whisk, stir sugar, cornstarch, espresso powder and salt until combined. Whisk in milk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with whisk, about 18 minutes until thickened and boiling; boil, stirring, 1 minute. Remove from heat; whisk about 1 cup hot mixture into yolk mixture until blended. Slowly scrape yolk mixture into hot mixture, stirring to prevent curdling. Stir over low heat about 3 minutes until very thick. Remove from heat; add chocolate a
  4. To serve: Mound whipped cream on pie, leaving a border of filling visible. Top cream with chocolate curls and candy hearts. Add a candy heart or 2 to each serving.
  5. For Candy Hearts: Melt 1/3 cup pink candy melts* as pkg directs. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a writing tip, or to a small ziptop bag, and snip tip off 1 corner. Pipe small hearts on a wax paper–lined baking sheet. Let set at room temperature, or refrigerate until hard. Remove with a metal spatula. Store at room temperature. *Available where cake supplies are sold
  6. For Chocolate Curls Have ready a foil-lined mini loaf pan or sturdy 3 1/2 x 2 x 1 1/2-in. pan made with layers of foil. Melt 4 oz semisweet baking chocolate with 1 tsp solid vegetable shortening. Pour into pan. Let set at room temperature. Pull a swivel-blade vegetable peeler down length of bar. Refrigerate curls until ready to use.
