How to do it

1. Mix together all ingredients in a bowl or processor. Pat into an 9-inch pie plate and bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes until just starting to brown.

2. Remove from oven and cool completely.Cream butter, sugar, vanilla, cocoa, espresso, cayenne, cinnamon, salt, and tequila. Turn mixer on medium-high and mix for a minimum of 5 minutes. Scrape bowl often.

3. Add each egg separately and beat for a full 5 minutes after the addition of each egg. Scrape bowl often.

4. Pour mixture into the cooled pie crust and refrigerate.

5. Heat cup of the whipping cream over medium heat in a small saucepan.

6. Add tequila, granulated sugar, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and espresso to the whipping cream and bring to a boil; turn heat down and let mixture simmer for 1 minute.Chill until cold.In a chilled mixing bowl, combine the remainder of the whipping cream with the cooled tequila-and-cream mixture and whisk thoroughly to combine. Whip until soft peaks form.

7. Add the powdered sugar (I like it less sweet, but add all 6 Tbsp if you like your whipped cream sweeter) and continue beating until firm peaks form.Generously pipe or dollop the whipped cream in the center of the pie, saving any extra for serving.Sprinkle with chocolate curls or cocoa.

8. Serve with additional whipping cream if desired.
