Derby Pie

This is what happens when you cross a Chocolate Chip Cookie with a Pecan Pie = Deliciousness!

I first had this pie a few years ago when we were visiting friends in Alabama for Thanksgiving.  Rachel brought this pie over for dessert. Now, let’s get one thing straight, I am just NOT a “pie person” – never have been. However, due to the fact that this particular pie had chocolate chips and pecans (not the typical fruit/cinnamon pie filling which I don’t like) I decided to give it a try. Umm… suddenly I became I “pie person” haha It was delicious! And every Thanksgiving since I have thought about that pie.  This year I emailed the lovely Rachel and got the recipe so I could actually make it!

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 eggs
1 stick butter (melted)

Preheat Oven to 350°. Grease a pie plate and the press the pie crust into it crimping the edges with your fingers.

In a stand mixer (or in a bowl using a hand mixer), mix the flour and sugar. Add eggs and then melted butter. Next, add vanilla extract and mix well. Last, gently fold in nuts and chocolate chips until combined well.

Spread evenly into the prepared pie plate/crust. Bake for 35-40 minutes until slightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Serve as is or with whipped cream.

    Hey, your pie is amazing and I finished putting in the ingredients in less than 30 min. Thank you so much for putting this recipe up because it’s the first pie I have ever made, and guess what I’m only 11 years old. I even made 112 of these pies for my mom and dads wedding. The guests loved it and I put on tons of whipped cream on top. I did have some of my classmates help and the pies helped make a stronger relationship with my classmates and the boy that I really like. Now the boy and I ( the boys name is Caleb) are really close*hint**hint*. Thank you soooooo much! ??????????Caleb and I = ????❤️

    Thank you again,

    Will they harden as they cool? I’m cooking some right now and they’ve already been in oven for 50 minutes but are still real jiggly in the middle. Nice golden crust on top.
