Kentucky "Race Day" Chocolate Pecan Pie
This is an incredibly easy but wonderful pie recipe to celebrate the Kentucky Derby! It is very rich, but it is great with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. To speed up the process, you could use a pre-packaged pie crust, but I highly recommend making a quick and easy crust from scratch!
Recipe Summary test
Around Kentucky, this pie is commonly referred to as "Derby-Pie(R)." Because a bakery in Louisville has a copyright for the "Derby-Pie(R)" phrasing, any public references must be altered to avoid a potential conflict.
You can use a freezer to expedite the crust chilling process, but I prefer to slowly bring to perfection.
Substitute vanilla extract if you don't have bourbon.
