    Stacky5's Note:

    Now, this is the 1st recorded, BASIC Kentucky Derby Day Pie from Southern Indiana. Just across the river from Louisville, KY, where the Kentucky Derby made this pie famous! (We can't call it by it's original name here because of trademark/copyright issues, but this is the original Derby Day pie recipe.) I must be honest with you, that ever since this "famous 1st recipe" was used, there have been several other (MODIFIED) versions of this wonderful dessert...Most of them include some sort of Kentucky Bourbon!!! In my opinion, the ones that include that KY Bourbon are the best, but I wanted to share with you the ORIGINAL pie (from the 1920's)...Just FYI...

      We made three of these pies for my daughter's special project on KY. We LOVE this easy to make pie! Making it again today for some KY family members, and it is sure to be a hit. We don't use the bourbon, and we use pecans. I am sure it is great with walnuts and bourbon as well. Highly recommend, hard to mess up this recipe!

      I've been baking this pie for years and this one will give your pancreas something to do because it is sweet but it is soooo good. I lost my recipe and when I went to look for it on line I found so many that were more complicated and fussy until I found this one that is exactly like I recalled my recipe. I sometimes add bourbon to it but it doesn't often get that far from my glass. I'm going to make it now. Thanks Kitty Kat

      I have made this a few times, and have adjusted it a bit as it was a bit too sweet. Used 3/4 c of sugar, and added about 2 Tablespoons of white karo syrup. Also adjusted the chocoloate chips to 3/4 cup. Wonderful!!! My family loves it.
