Chocolate Pecan Cookie Pie

This is a big weekend. We have Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby. I view both as a great excuse to celebrate. Am I right?! I am not a horse racing fan, but we always watch the Kentucky Derby. I feel the best way to watch the race is with a Mint Julep in one hand and a slice of this pie in the other. This pie is a cross between a chocolate chip cookie and pecan pie. It is great slightly warm with a big dollop of bourbon whipped cream.

How to Make Kentucky Derby Pie

This dessert is very easy to make. Melt butter, and cool for about 5 minutes. Combine flour and sugar. Whisk in melted butter, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in chopped pecans. Sprinkle chocolate chips on the bottom of the pie crust. Pour pecan mixture over chocolate chips and bake. Top the pie with a quick bourbon whipped cream.

  • This pie uses a regular frozen pie crust NOT a deep dish pie crust.
  • Can substitute a graham cracker crust for the pastry pie crust.
  • You can omit the bourbon in the whipped cream if you prefer.
  • Can substitute walnuts for the chopped pecans in the pie.
  • The pie will keep up to 5 days tightly wrapped at room temperature.
  • Can Kentucky Derby Pie be frozen? Yes! Bake the pie and cool completely. Wrap the pie in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag and freeze. The pie will keep up to 3 months in the freezer.

Comments

  1. I made this pie using six small individual paper tart pans without a bottom pie crust. I used non-stick spray. I also added a few tablespoons of Makers’ Mark. Turned out great. I’m up at approx 6,500 elevation and I did not adjust the recipe but for the MM. I baked them for 40 minutes. Will be making this again!

  2. Just so you don't get in trouble change the name to Kentucky Racy Day Pie. It sure looks rich, yummy and too good to be eaten.

  3. Just made the pie last night, it was a very rich and sweet pie. I loved it. My husband is not really crazy about chocolate, but he said it was good.

    Super easy to make. I plan to share it with my friends this week.

    1. Do you remember how long you cooked the mini pies? I am making tart sized pies and am not sure how long to cook them for.

  4. Oops!…Just now saw the question and answer above in another comment. Guess I'd better read all the other comments first.

  5. Question….Do you top the pie with another crust or does it just bake up that way? By the picture it looks like it has a top crust.

  6. Ditto to what Emily said. I live in Louisville and Kern's Kitchen (the people who own the rights to the name and the pie) goes after anyone who tries to use it. Be careful! It is a delicious put though! Happy Derby–we have been partying for two weeks already here in the Derby city! 🙂

  8. FYI I have a KY derby pie recipe on my blog and was contacted by WordPress that the lawyers for the restaurant owning the rights to the pie name/recipe were threatening litigation if I didn't stop calling it derby pie. Just a heads up they will eventually contact you!!
