Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Letter D

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Simple Sensations: Delectable Derby Pie! The race may be over, but this slice of pie is a champion all year long. The spirit is kept alive in a southern tradition of semi-sweet chocolate, Kentucky bourbon, and crunchy pecans. Top it off with a dollop of whipped cream and you can find yourself cheering for this triple crown winner. 

1/2 cup butter 

1 cup sugar

3 eggs, beaten

3/4 cup white Karo syrup 

2 tablespoons flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla 

1 cup chocolate chips

1/2 cup pecans, chopped

2 tablespoons bourbon

1 10″ unbaked deep dish pie shell

Preheat oven to 325Β°. Cream butter while gradually adding sugar. Add beaten eggs, Karo syrup, salt, flour, and vanilla. Add chocolate chips, nuts, and bourbon. Mix well. Pour into crust. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until set. Serve warm garnished with whipped cream. 
*TIP: Do not overfill pie crust. Extra filling may be baked in a ramekin for sampling later.
