Kentucky Derby Pie (Makes You Wanna Say "Yeehaw"!)

Thought I'd share the easiest and best southern pie recipe. It's also perfect for having guests over because prep and cook time are minimal and super easy.

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (preferably a heaping cup :)
  • 1 cup English Pecans or Walnuts
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup flour (all-purpose or Whole wheat)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together (by hand or mixer) butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs first until smooth. Then add flour and nut choice and chocolate chips.

Bake at 350 for thirty minutes. After it cools, drizzle melted semi-sweet chocolate on top. (It drizzles better if you put paraffin in with the chocolate) Serve, practice good southern manners, and leave the pie plate clean.

This hard to beat recipe has been a tradition associated with the Kentucky Derby Horse Race for quite a while.

WARNING! It is detrimental to you existence to have one gallon of milk available to accompany this essential food item.

(BTW I just one second place with this in a pie contest!)

Oh wow. That looks fantastic! If only this sweet baby wasn't requiring me to avoid dairy (butter) and chocolate. Oh boy. I'm bookmarking this for later.

On a different note, how are the Lees? We haven't heard anything from them in awhile and Mom and I have been thinking and talking about them a lot here lately. You can email me if you would rather

Have a blessed week.
