While there are a couple of other recipes for Kentucky Derby Day pies on this site, there wasn't one exactly like the one I grew up eating. And when something is as perfect as this pie, you want the exact recipe. Trust me.

Clear five stars - I can't compare because I never had Kentucky pie before, but this one was extremely addictive! I used a gluten free pie crust and used erythritol instead of the granulated sugar to have less sugar. For the flour I used a mix of 1/3 arrowroot starch and 2/3 white rice flour, and it worked like a charm. As there was no direction about the choc chips, I used 85 percent chocolate, and it turned out soooo goood!!! You're right, you'd never guess how easy this fantastic pie is! Thanks for posting.
Made for PAC Spring 2011.
