Chocolate Mocha Pie


This is a pie that I remember from my growing up years. My Mom was always good at making it perfectly smooth-and it was delicious!!
9 inch baked pie shell
1 Tablespoon plain gelatin
¼ cup cold water
2 Tablespoons cocoa
¾ cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup instant coffee, brewed
1¼ cups milk
1 cup cream,whipped or
2 cups cool whip
1 teaspoon vanilla, omit if using cool whip
Soften gelatin in water. Bring cocoa, sugar, salt, coffee, and milk to a boil. Remove from heat and add gelatin. Stir with a wire whisk until smooth. Cool until slightly thickened. Beat the cooked mixture until smooth. Beat cream until soft peaks form and add vanilla. Beat again till mixed. Or add the cool whip. Fold whipped cream or cool whip into cooked mixture. Pour into pie shell and garnish as desired.

I used an extra deep pie pan so I used a recipe and a half.
