Derby Pie

My mom grew up in Kentucky, so we've always celebrated Derby Day. Here in Australia, though, there's not a Derby Party in sight. And until now, there wasn't a Derby Pie in sight.

This is the best pie.

Derby Pie
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons bourbon
1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans
9-inch pie-shell (you can make your own pastry if you like, of course)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C)
2. Bake pie shell for 5 minutes, then remove from oven and set aside
3. Cream butter and sugar
4. Add eggs, salt, and flour
5. Add chips and pecans
6. Pour into shell
7. Bake 3o-35 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean)

I whipped up some cream with a bit of castor sugar and WOWEE!

Don't tell anyone about this recipe, I don't want everyone to know about it.


  1. Mmmmmmm! No wonder people get so excited about the Kentucky Derby! They get to eat this pie!!

  2. yum this looks so amazing!! also really like the pumpkin muffin idea.. I'm a big believer in pumpkin scones so I think I could probably transfer that love into muffin format =)
