So y’all know–or most of you–that I’m rather fond of coffee. I’m especially fond of coffee that is sweet and creamy. And then there’s pie. I especially like pie in the summer. So, coffee AND pie? I’m all over that!

This recipe comes from PILLSBURY so click on over to get all the nutritional details. When a friend pointed out to me that Sade would like this dessert, I commented that Hannah and Sade might go head-to-head over the last piece. Sade, the MC of the Penumbra Papers series, and Hannah, the…well…I guess she’s now the matriarch of the Moonstruck Wolves series, might give up their men for coffee. Probably not. But…maybe. 😉 Anway…
You can read about Sade in THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC, the first book in the Penumbra Papers and catch up on her lastest exploits in GHOSTS AND THE ANCIENT STONES. The beginning of Hannah’s story can be found in BLOOD MOON, or more fullin the MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS, though she’s pretty much covered in each of the Moonstruck books. Just click on the book cover or the title and you will zoom away to the links page where you can pick your favorite etailer. Anyway, what’s your favorite pie? Stay cool out there and just remember…COFFEE ICE CREAM PIE! FTW!!!
PS: That same friend challenged me to write that scene between Sade and Hannah. Maybe I will…
