I’m the farthest thing from a math whiz, but I do know that today is 3/14 and that means it’s Pi(e) Day! I’ll do a little math if it gives me an excuse to eat pie. My favorite pie (and one of my all time favorite desserts) is Kentucky Derby Pie. The rich, chocolatey sweetness of the filling is perfectly complemented by the salty crust – I’ve never met someone who didn’t enjoy a slice of this goodness!
There’s no better way to celebrate Pie Day than with a slice of Derby Pie. I’ve seen a few different recipes for this dessert floating around, but this one is my favorite.
Kentucky Derby Pie (recipe appears courtesy of RefreshHer)
- 1 stick butter or margarine, melted and cooled
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup walnuts or pecans
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Unbaked pie shell (I like this recipe for Frannie’s Lard Crust, but Pillsbury’s works well too!)
Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla to cooled butter. Stir well. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Happy Pie Day!
