½ tsp. cayenne
¼ cup chunky peanut butter

To make the crust, put the cookies in a food processor and pulse until fine. Slowly add the butter and pulse until mixed well.

Press the crust into a 9-inch pie shell and freeze.

Place the cream, sour cream and cream cheese in a food processor and mix until smooth.

Add the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Transfer the cream cheese mixture to a large bowl.

In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream over low heat.

Add the cumin, cayenne and peanut butter and stir until smooth.

Add the cream of coconut and stir. Turn off the heat.

Add the cream and cumin mixture to the cream cheese mixture and mix thoroughly.

Remove the pie shell from the freezer.

Spread the strawberry jam on the bottom of the shell.

Pour the filling into the shell and freeze for 4 to 6 hours.

When thoroughly frozen, cut the pie into wedges and serve. Garnish with a dollop of Jack Daniels-jalapeño whipped cream and drizzles of strawberry-habañero and chocolate-chipotle sauces.
