A combination of toasty nuts (walnuts or pecans), chocolate, bourbon, and an awesome buttery crust, "Derby Pie®
" is so delicious it's been trademarked
. Similar to baby pecan pies
, these Kentucky Derby Mini Pies are filled with all the best things: chocolate (standard pecan pies lack chocolate, but it can be added to make them extra awesome), nuts, butter, bourbon, and love! They're perfect as an everyday sweet treat, or for a special snack while watching the Kentucky Derby.
According to some people, these pies are even better with bacon added also. I've never tried it, but everything's better with bacon, right? Why not give it a shot and see?
If you prefer, you can also make a large pie instead of many mini pies, you'll just need to add a few minutes to the cooking time. Also, make sure your pie plate is quite deep, and make sure not to overfill it.
