Basic Kentucky Chocolate Walnut Pie
55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
8 ingredients
6-8 servings
Now, this is the 1st recorded, BASIC Kentucky Derby Day Pie from Southern Indiana. Just across the river from Louisville, KY, where the Kentucky Derby made this pie famous! (We can't call it by it's original name here because of trademark/copyright issues, but this is the original Derby Day pie recipe.) I must be honest with you, that ever since this "famous 1st recipe" was used, there have been several other (MODIFIED) versions of this wonderful dessert...Most of them include some sort of Kentucky Bourbon!!! In my opinion, the ones that include that KY Bourbon are the best, but I wanted to share with you the ORIGINAL pie (from the 1920's)...Just FYI...
