“That horse race” is the Kentucky Derby, and this pie is a tradition for Derby Day parties. Can’t call it a Derby Pie, though, because a bakery in Louisville gets real upset. This pie is too good for just one day. The chocolate, bourbon, and nuts just blend to perfection. It travels well, making it great for potlucks and family reunions. Make this pie often.
This recipe is excerpted from Bourbon.

This is the best pie I have ever made! It may NOT be called THE DERBY PIE, but let me tell you it is EVERY bit as delicious! I wish I could "upload" a photo of how wonderful my pie came out. This recipe is truly delicious perfection! I particularly love the "combination" of walnuts & pecans (I'm a nut fan)! *Note: If you desire a heighten flavor profile you can "brown" the melted butter (then let it cool slightly)....then add as directed in the recipe! Wow, it taste like CHOCOLATE-CREME BRULEE in a shell. Indeed this recipe is Yummy Goodness! :-D
