Make It: Chocolatetown Pie

This is somewhat similar to the Kentucky Chocolate Pecan Pie (Don’t Call it Derby Pie, Pegasus Pie and a host of other names*), except a little less messy to prepare (unless you enjoy using corn syrup).

Preheat oven to 350*


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp Bourbon

Then, combine

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour

Then, stir in

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Pour mix into an unbaked 9″ pie shell

Serve with or without whipped topping

Happy Mother’s Day!

Kern’s Kitchen Derby Pie®:

Second, Derby pie is copyrighted. So even if you baked a similar tasting pie, you’d have to call it something else: Steppingstone pie, or Bluegrass Stakes pie, or Gerby pie. And the copyright is jealously guarded, as several local bakeries and restaurants have discovered. Reports that so-and-so is purporting to sell Derby pie, when in fact he isn’t, a brief visit from the Kerns’ lawyer rectifies the situation quickly.
