This pecan pie meets chocolate chip cookie pie is sinfully delicious and so easy to make. It's gooey, chocolately, sweet, and will quickly become a family favorite!
I realize that the original Derby Pie is made with walnuts (not pecans) and some bourbon but 1) I like pecans better and 2) this is so good, you won't miss the bourbon... but if you do, you can always throw some in. I'm not much of a baker but I couldn't believe how ridiculously easy this pie is. I included it in the children's cooking camp I hosted this summer and the kids easily threw several pies together with minimal supervision. So if 7 year olds can make it, I know anyone can!
Every single person who snagged a slice requested the recipe - it's that good! If you like pecan pie or chocolate chip cookies, you'll love this. It's like pecan pie and chocolate chip cookie pie got married and created this beautiful love child. You must try it!
Kentucky Derby Pie
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 frozen deep dish pie crust
Preheat the oven to 325.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and sugar, mixing well. Allow butter to cool a minute or two and then add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Add salt and flour, mixing well.
Fold in the pecans and chocolate chips.
Pour the mixture into the deep dish pie crust and bake for 1 hour. Let cool for 1-2 hours before slicing.
