I received a blog award today and decided to accept it. Along with the award came a request to pass it along to 12 other bloggers who "inspire others with positivity and creativity." I choose you!Congratulations!
Brin! What a great idea. I get so fed up with not accomplishing my goals. This should be a big help. HA!
I'm almost embarrassed to say so, but chocolate isn't my thing like it is with so many women...salt is! Can you believe that? I like chocolate, I just don't crave it...not good at. All.*Ü*Joni
Our favorite Mexican restaurant stopped offering this pie. I need the recipe too!!
You are brilliant! What's at the top of my "to do" list for tomorrow? Eat chocolate... I just know that I am going to feel so accomplished tomorrow! Thank you!
haha, I like that way you think! The pie looks amazing!
In KY, we call it "Derby Pie" and this one came from a woman named "Candy Bethany". I don't know her and I got this from my mom.You're welcome (grin).4 eggs3/4 c sugar1/4 c brown sugar1 c white corn syrup1 stick butter1 cup choc chips1 cup pecans1 tsp vanilla1 tbsp flourBeat eggs. Melt butter. Mix all ingredients together. Pour into UNBAKED pie shell (your recipe or favorite frozen variety). Bake 45 minutes at 350. Makes 2 pies (but I like to 1 1/2 it for really full pies).Serve with Haagen Daz Vanilla Bean (that's not part of the recipe...just my fave way to eat.)ENJOY!(PS I love love love your blog)
As usual, you are brilliant!
I just had a chocolate covered marshmallow..LOL....didnt feel guilty at all either! It was on my to-do list after all.
I love this idea!
I so agree, make mine dark! :)
I think I will make notepads for my teachers with this on the top!Thanks for the idea!
Derby pie and chocolate chip pecan pie are not the same. Here's chocolate chip pecan. The quality of your vanilla really makes a difference. The store bought stuff I used here for Christmas wasn't nearly as good as the homemade stuff I use in the Bul. Mexican vanilla would probably be good.1 unbaked pie crust3/4 cup Corn Syrup3 eggs1/4 cup sugar1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar¼ tsp salt2 tablespoons butter, melted1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract2 cups chopped pecans, toasted if desired1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (add 1/4 to 1/2 cup for chocolate lovers)Preheat oven to 350°F.To prepare FILLING: Combine corn syrup, eggs, sugars, salt, butter and vanilla in medium mixing bowl until well blended. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips.Pour into pie crust.Bake on center rack of oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until pie appears barely set.Cool for 2 hours before serving.Goes well with ice cream or whipped creamEnjoy! It's one of my favorites!! (BTW: this is MY adaptation, you won't find it anywhere else easily.)
BTW: the Derby pie recipe sounds delish, it's just more of a "baked good" type pie, maybe a bit more "cookie-ish?" than the normal chocolate chip pecan. My F-I-L is from Kentucky and he had my pie and said it wasn't the sam thing as Derby pie, but he said he liked both of them. (I asked because someone from Tennessee told me that's what I was making.) So I think they are probably both just as good in their own ways, just they aren't the same.
Note to self: Add to my to-do-list.
