Year of the Pie - Pie #46 Kentucky Derby Pie

This pie is similar to the Tar Heel Pie I made here.
I think a TRUE Derby Pie has bourbon in it. Anyway, The Tar Heel Pie and this pie may be a variation of the Derby Pie with no bourbon. Regardless, they ARE made a little differently, therefore, each qualifies for its own week. Pie #32 was quite tasty, let's see if this one will be as well. Ready....?
Here is what you will need.
1 C. sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 C. pecans, broken or chopped
6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips (sounds good already doesn't it?)
1/2 C. flour
1/4 pound of butter, melted (in the butter world that is 1/2 C. or 8 T.) (Joyce's recipe called for margarine, so you make that call)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 9-inch frozen pie crust.......(well we will use a fresh one-chilled)
Mix all of that together, place in crust and bake for 1 hour at 325°.(baked mine right at 50 min.)
Best served slightly warm with whipped cream.

The recipe was graciously shared with me by my knittin' friend Joyce.

Between the Tar Heel and this pie...I prefer the Tar Heel a little better, because it calls for a bit more chocolate.

Hope you enjoy it.

Until Next Time.
