I doubled this to fit a 13x9 pan, and it worked great! I followed the recommended triple-strength coffee and was very pleased with the result. The "leche" flavor comes from lots of cream cheese, so it's richer and not as mousse-y as I expected. Make sure it gets a full 12+ hours to set--I made mine first thing in the morning, and it still wasn't set when served at dinner.
Café con Leche Cream Pie
Brew triple-strength coffee for the best flavor. The combination of sweetened condensed milk and cream cheese will cut any bitterness.
