 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 1/2  tablespoons   flour
    1      tablespoon    shortening
    1      tablespoon    cold water
    1      cup           pecans
      1/4  cup           light brown sugar
      1/2  cup           semisweet chocolate chips
    1      teaspoon      vanilla
    2 1/2  cups          heavy whipping cream
    2      ounces        unsweetened baking chocolate -- cut into bits
      3/4  cup           powdered sugar
    2 1/4  teaspoons     granulated instant coffee
    2      cups          heavy whipping cream
      1/2  cup           powdered sugar
    2      tablespoons   granulated instant coffee
      3/4  cup           semisweet chocolate chips
 Preheat oven to 350.  Prepare crust:  In a small mixing bowl, cut shortening
 into flour until mixture is consistency of cornmeal. Add water and stir to
 combine; form a small ball of dough.  In bowl of food processor fitted with
 metal blade, combine dough, brown sugar, pecans, chocolate chips and
 vanilla.  Process to chop mixture coarsely.  Expect some large chunks to be
 left. Press crut mixture into 9-inch pie pan to cover bottom and half of
 side.  Bake 6-8 minutes or until just brown.  Allow shell to cool
 completely.  Prepare filling:  In small saucepan over low heat, melt
 chocolate pieces in 1/4 cup cream, stirring frequently, until mixture is
 smooth.  Set aside to cool.  In large bowl of mixer, combine remaining
 whipping cream, powdered sugar and coffee granules and beat until cream
 thickens and forms peaks.  Fold chocolate mixture into whipped cream by
 hand.  Do not over mix because cream has a tendency to break up after
 chocolate is added.  Pour filling into prepared pie crust, smoothing top.
 Freeze filling at least 1 hour.
 Prepare topping:  In large bowl of mixer, combine whipping cream, powdered
 sugar and instant coffee granules.  Beat at high speed until stiff.  Mound
 over filling, smoothing surface.  Sprinkle chocolate morsels over top and
 freeze until solid.  Serve frozen.  Makes one 9-inch pie.
