BEST Kentucky Derby Pie Recipe
My own version, made with blood, sweat and tears, and some major love! Seriously, we made these Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pies for years at the bakery. Way too good and very rich. Just what you want for tomorrow's race with a tall icy Mint Julep!
Another one of the bakery's specialties: Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe with Roasted PecansEmeril Lagasse's Gold Brick Chocolate Pecan Pie - This recipe sounds pretty similar to my Kentucky Derby Pie. However, his does include edible gold leaf. Not sure if you want to include this or not. Looks pretty, but probably over-the-top expensive too!
Bobby Flay's Mint Julep Recipe - So easy to make Kentucky Derby Mint Juleps made with just a few ingredients. Course, the best Bourbon Whiskey and fresh mint leaves are a must for this race day special.
