Instant Gingerbread Coffee

I make this coffee when I have a craving for anything gingerbread. I top it with whipped cream, and add a light sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

Instant Gingerbread Coffee

1-1/2 tsp. instant coffee (Maxwell House or Folgers)
1 cup boiling water
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, plus an 1/8 tsp.
2-1/2 tsp. unsulphured molasses (See *Note)
3 tablespoons half-and-half cream
Reddi Wip Whipped Cream (to garnish coffee)
pumpkin pie spice (a light sprinkle to garnish coffee)

In a coffee cup mix together, the instant coffee, 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, plus the 1/8 tsp.

Add the boiling water and molasses, and stir.

Stir in the half-and-half.

Garnish coffee with the Reddi Wip.

Lightly sprinkle a bit of pumpkin pie spice over the whipped topping, and serve.

This makes: 1 serving.

*Note: For this coffee be sure to unsulphured molasses. It really adds flavor to the coffee. Whatever you do, do not use a mild molasses, as it's just too bland, and doesn't add much flavor.
