This recipe for Derby Pie is so easy. The original recipe was created at Melrose Inn in Kentucky, known for their famous desserts. My recipe for this ooey, gooey, chocolate chip pie, which comes from my sweet mother-in-law, leaves off the Kentucky bourbon included in the original recipe.
My Kentucky-born-and-bred husband loves this pie. Any time we have a family event or birthday or something special going on, he asks me for this pie. You can put this together really quickly.
You probably have all you need on hand: pie shell, chocolate chips, nuts, sugar, flour, butter, and 2 eggs. You’re just mixing it up and pouring it in the pie shell to bake. Plus, it keeps well. I don’t even refrigerate it, but let me tell you, it doesn’t last long, so you really don’t have to worry about how you will store leftovers.
Try it! For such a decadent dessert, you’ll be surprised at how simple it is to make.
