Derby Pie

Derby-ish Pie


¼ c. butter
1 c. sugar
3 eggs
¾ c. white Karo syrup
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ c. chocolate morsels
½ c. chopped pecans
2 Tbsp. Bourbon
1 unbaked pie crust


  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Cream butter, add sugar gradually. Add beaten eggs, syrup, salt, vanilla. Add chocolate, pecans, and Bourbon.
  • Stir well.
  • Pour into crust and bake at 375 degrees for 40-50 minutes, till firmish (okay if it jiggles a little; it will settle down).
  • Rewarm to serve.

Note: the name “Derby Pie” is trademarked, but this recipe comes from an old Derby cookbook that belongs to my mother, and in that cookbook it is called “Derby Pie.”
