Saturday is the Kentucky Derby and that is something I have always wanted to attend. Of course I haven't found the perfect hat yet so I am waiting until I do. You might not can attend this year's Derby but you can eat like you are there. This is a very easy pie to make whether it is Derby weekend or not.
The recipe calls for regular pie crust but I think the deep dish might be better. Mine overflowed.
Measure out 1 cup chocolate chips. The recipe didn't say what kind so I used milk chocolate.
Spread them out in the bottom of a frozen pie crust.
Melt one stick of unsalted butter. Let it cool for a few minutes.
In a bowl add 1 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans. I learned I can't cook, take pictures and talk on the phone all at the same time because I forget to take pictures.
Now add in the cooled melted butter.
Mix well. It will be thick.
Add 2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Mix well and then pour on top of the chips.
Smooth it around on top to try and even it out. Place in a preheated 325 oven for 1 hour.
Fresh from the oven. It cooked over the edges. It tasted pretty good though.
Look at all that chocolate. You can top it with a little whipped cream if you like.
