A boozy pie to share which is perfect for anytime, be it for Spring, served chilled in Summer, or to enjoy when the colorful Fall is so pretty, but especially for Christmas gathering.

This is one pie that I could most definitely finished the whole plate myself. Yes, sounds greedy, I know, but it is my kind of pie, chocolate, booze, coffee, walnut, and whipped cream, hmmmm YUM! 😀
