This, although tasty, isn't quite what I consider to be a traditional Derby Pie. Derby Pie is a little more moist and fudgy than this lighter version. (Almost a brownie texture) Walnuts are traditional, but I think pecans would have been better. (Just a matter of taste.) Keep it authentic and use a small-batch Kentucky Bourbon. (I used Woodford Reserve.) Make sure you serve warm with a scoop of vanilla bean. Enjoy...and make sure to wear your flashy hat!

ok pie, as a ky gal i can say this one is not even CLOSE to derby pie :-(, so if that's what you are going for try something else

This pie just won me 1st prize in a pie bake-off with 50 other pies. Turned out great on my first try. Very easy to make and set up nicely. I used a few variations: add some spice with dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg; use dark chocolate chips for more intensity; and coffee liquore instead of bourbon. I know these variations may make it less "traditional" but this recipe overall is a genuine 1st Place Winner. Thanks, Judi!

I have made this countless times. Added vanilla extract as well as quite a bit more bourbon. Also, used a whole package of chocolate chips. Made this the day before for a friend's birthday. Also, makes great tarts.

This recipe is great! I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I find it very hard to tell when it's done so sometimes it's over/under-done. The only ingredient alteration I make is adding a little extra bourbon and vanilla. After everyone loved the pie, I made these in bar form for a picnic: they turned out GREAT! For a 9x9 pan, I used 1.5 times the recipe. One circular pie crust still covers the bottom of the pan - I cut off the excess crust about 1/4" up the sides. Baked for 30-35 minutes. COOL COMPLETELY before you cut them into squares. Next time, I'll double the recipe and use a 9x13 pan.

This recipe was great. I had been looking for this recipe for a while. The only thing I will do differently next time is add vanilla to the mixture.

I made this pie for my husband who is a chocolate chip cookie hound. He loved it! The only change I will make when I make it tomorrow for the Race is that I will substitute brown sugar for the granulated. A personal choice, as the granulated sugar alone seemed a bit lacking in "oomph". Otherwise, a luscious and decadent treat!

From a girl who was born and raised in Louisville, KY, this a darn good rendition of a Derby favorite :) I've tried quite a few Derby Pie recipes and for how simple this is and how good it tastes, this is my new favorite! I don't do alcohol in my recipes, but I did add some pure vanilla as suggested. This was a HIT with family and friends and, most importantly, with me!
