Kentucky Derby Day Pie

Saturday is Derby Day!  I would call this Derby Pie, but the name is trademarked.  So I can't.  Even though that's what this is.  And you should make this pie this week in honor of the Derby.

And since I started the week with a cake, I found it only appropriate to follow cake with pie.


It's Tuesday, and I need to get on the elliptical.

And you should go make this pie.

It's a Kentucky tradition.

Kentucky Derby Day Pie

1 piecrust, fitted into a 9-inch pie plate
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped pecans

Whisk together the butter, sugar, vanilla and eggs.  Stir in the flour just until incorporated.

Line the piecrust with the chocolate chips.  Spread the pecans evenly on top.  Pour the custard mixture on top.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35 minutes, until the pie is just cooked through and no longer jiggly.

Serve warm or at room temperature.  Delish with ice cream or whipped cream.
