To Make the Chocolate Cookie Crust:
  1. Crush the Famous Wafers to a fine powder, stir in the melted butter, press into the bottom of a pie dish, and bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees.

  2. Remove from the heat and steep until cooled.
  3. Strain through a cheesecloth.
  4. In another pot, heat the sugar, corn syrup, and water over medium-high heat, until amber in color.
  5. Remove from heat and pour in the coffee/cream mixture. Set aside until cool.
To Make the Filling:
  1. Place the sugar, flour, and salt in a medium pot and gradually whisk in the milk and vanilla.

  2. Heat over a medium flame, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  3. Stir a small amount of the hot mixture into the egg yolks to gently warm them.
  4. Pour the yolks into the pot and return to the stove. Heat, stirring constantly, until bubbling and thick.
  5. Strain into a heat-safe bowl, cover the surface with plastic wrap, and chill.
  6. Whip the cream to soft peaks and fold into the cooled pastry cream.
