Kentucky Derby Pie


Yes, that Kentucky Derby Pie hovering on a cake stand is one of the many things that I whipped up for the Derby party over the past weekend. It was eaten pretty quickly but still I managed to get a photo of this beauty. And don't wait for any particular celebration--serve it anytime of the year! Vintage tablecloths, sturdy cookware and carefully chosen items such as a fine pitcher always make an excellent table. Note the racing form in the background!

Kentucky Derby Pie
Ingredients
2 eggs, beaten
1 stick butter, melted and cooled
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup plain flour
1 t vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
1 9-inch unbaked pie shell

Method
Beat together eggs, butter, sugar, flour, until well blended. Add vanilla, chocolate chips, and nuts. Add to pie crust and bake at 325 degrees and remove after about 28 minutes so it will be a little bit gooey.

Thanks to grouprecipes.com for the recipe and Adrienne Hays for the photo!
