Kentucky Derby Pie

updated 5/4/14
Technically, we can't call this Derby Pie since the restaurant (or hotel?) that first started making it is protective of that name. So, we'll call this Kentucky Derby-like Pie. It's yummy--basically a giant blonde brownie in a crust. Since the Derby is the first Saturday in May, it's a good day to post it! We do a Derby day with our neighbors each year--they provide mint juleps and we make the pie. This year, they're throwing Kentucky Hot Browns into the mix as well--I'll post that recipe at some point.

Based on this recipe here.

  • 1/2 c. butter, melted
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 T. bourbon (optional)
  • 3/4-1 1/4 c. chocolate chips (can there be too many?)
  • 3/4-1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 9-inch unbaked pie crust
  1. Combine all ingredients and mix with fork.
  2. Bake in pie crust at 350 for 45-60 minutes, or until brown on top and filling is cooked. Note that the top may brown before the filling is fully cooked. You're looking for a gooey brownie texture, not runny, but not fully cake-y, either. If top is browning too quickly, simply cover with foil.
