I’m not sure when this became a food blog…. but I hope to come back in full swing this summer. In the meantime, I will try to catch up!
I love celebrating Derby and even though we didn’t have a big plan this year, I still wanted to serve Derby Pie to a few friends. I used a recipe from Paula Deen.
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups sugar
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels, melted
1 cup sifted self-rising flour
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups chopped pecans
2 (9-inch) deep dish unbaked pie shells or 3 (9-inch) unbaked regular pie shells
Ice cream, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine eggs, sugar, and melted chocolate in large bowl. Add flour and mix well, stirring in remaining ingredients except for pie shells. Bake 50 to 60 minutes.
