I was randomly searching pie recipes and came across this one. I had all of the ingredients on hand. It was simple and fast. That's my style! It's also delicious! I'd suggest if making your own self-rising flour to measure carefully. Two of my 3 pies ballooned a bit too much! More to savour!
Everybody at the picnic loved this pie. I didn't have enough chocolate chips so I threw in some peanut butter chips also. My tip would be to not overbake this.
Wow! What a pie! My husband and sons devoured this pie. My husband who is not a pie eater has already asked me if I'm making this again soon. I used my own pie crust recipe because it was faster for me to make a pie crust and roll it out than to do the graham cracker crust thing. I make a lot of pies, so I have to tell you that with my flakey pie crust and the rich chcolate and walnuts, it was fabulous! Oh, I also used 1/2 regular Crisco and 1/2 butter. When I make chocolate chip cookies, I also use Crisco. People always ask me for MY chocolate chip cookie recipe because it is so good. It's the same as anyone elses except that I use 1/2 Crisco and 1/2 butter. Back to this fabulous recipe... I can't wait to try the rum or bourban next time.
Excellent pie, being from Kentucky I know what a traditional Derby Pie is and this was way better, but I did a non-traditional thing to mine. I used back walnuts rather than English walnuts or pecans. I had all on hand but my dad prefers black walnuts to any other nut.
Very good pie. Had all of the ingredients handy. DH loved it!!!
*****I can sum this up by saying, this is a little piece of heaven. I used pecans and 2 tsp of whiskey. All the ingredients blended together very nicely. I will be making this again.Thanks Karen for posting this recipe!
