Agnes's Mocha Velvet Pie

1 pie shell
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 square unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 tbsp. instant coffee grounds
2 eggs
1/2 cup cream for whipping


Prepare 8-inch pastry shell. Cream butter in medium-size bowl and gradually add sugar, creaming well after each addition. Cool melted chocolate; blend into butter-sugar mixture with instant coffee and vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating VERY WELL after each addition. (Use an electric beater or mixer, because you'll need to beat in each egg 5 minutes to make mixture creamy, thick, and fluffy.) Turn into baked pastry shell. Chill 1 - 2 hours. Just before serving, whip cream and garnish pie.
