Preheat oven to 350.


In a medium bowl, combine cracker crumbs, chopped sliced almonds, and sugar. Stir in melted butter until combined. Press mixture evenly into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 8 minutes; cool completely.


In a small bowl, soften gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water; let stand for 2 minutes. Microwave gelatine mixture on high in 30-second intervals until dissolved (approximately 1 minute total); set aside and let cool for 5 minutes.


In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Add liqueur, beating at low speed until smooth.


In a medium bowl, beat cream at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Stir in gelatin mixture. Fold cream cheese mixture into cream mixture. Spoon into crust. Cover, and chill 4 hours before serving. Garnish with toasted sliced almonds, if desired.

To make this American classic, simply fold shredded sweetened coconut into American-style pudding and spread the pudding in a prebaked pie shell. To give it an intense coconut flavor, use coconut milk to make the pudding - not the sweetened coconut cream used to make pina caladas, but the unsweetened kind, usually from Thailand.
