OMG!! Made this pie today. SO GOOD! We made 8 of them, we made 2 of those with splenda instead of sugar and it was as good as the original recipe. Super easy to make. Definitely need the deep dish crust. Iam not a big pecan pie person but I LOVED this. Pretty rich, I actually liked the splenda version the best.
We made this on Girls weekend/Kentucky Derby weekend 2012. It was VERY good and we got a little crazy and threw in 1 1/2 cups of high end dark chocolate chips. I think it would have been just fine with the 3/4 cup. We also didn't have any bourbon and didn't want to use the vodka in it so we used two tablespoons of coffee. Great, great recipe! I also used Best-Ever Pie Crust from this site. Nice. And we got 12 slices out of this pie because it was very rich. Great with ice cream or whipped cream.
Excellent pie but extremely rich. I made it exactly as the recipe suggested. Warning: cut small slices.
this is a good pie.
Very easy to make. I'm not a huge chocolate fan, so found it very rich, but the fam loved it. I would not use as many chocolate chips next time. I used Splenda in place of the white sugar and couldn't tell a difference. I agree that you definitely need a deep dish pie crust!
My husband and I lived in Louisville for 10 years. So now when there is a holiday or special occasion my husband expects his Derby pie. This recipe is the best I have found! Just follow it as is and you can't go wrong. Great replacement for the normal boring pecan pie....this pie makes me a super star to my husband and kiddos! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!
I made this for a friend who remembered having something called Derby Pie as a kid. This luscious pie brought back the memories for him and made new ones for the rest of us! Other than adding a full cup of the mini chocolate chips, I followed the recipe exactly and served with a little French vanilla ice cream....perfect!
