♥ Derby Pie ♥

Ok, so maybe I am cheating a little here. Normally, I only like to post about something I have just done, but I am going to write about something that I last experienced about 5 months ago. Although, I'm sure I will have it again before the year is out!! :-)

Derby Pie! Soooo yummy warmed up with a dollop of whipped cream. Also sometimes referred to as "Kentucky Pie", it was created in 1950 in Prospect, Kentucky (a city in Eastern Louisville...just a few minutes from where I live). The name "Derby Pie" was chosen among others from a hat! It is made with chocolate, walnuts or pecans, a flaky crust, and BOURBON! Haha! It's kind of like a chocolate pecan pie, just with the special little alcoholic addition!

It is really delicious and a favorite at Derby time...or anytime!!
