We had rain on and off all day Saturday so what’s a girl to do stuck inside with three little boys and a hungry husband? Bake of course! Continuing with my Kentucky Derby theme, (I shared my mint julep recipe last week,) today I have an amazing recipe for Kentucky Derby Pie. If you haven’t heard of this delicious concoction, today is your lucky day. Kentucky Derby Pie is unbelievably easy to make and yields a delicious pie filled with pecans and chocolate. I’ve heard it called Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie also because the filling turns out a similar texture and flavor as a cookie. I dare you to take just one bite!
