Mothers Day Special - Derby Pie

In Australia this Sunday is one of the  most important days of all!  Mothers Day!

For the next few days leading up to Mothers Day I will be showcasing some of the best recipes sent in by sons and daughters ...

Jason, originally from Kentucky has sent in his Mum's (Rita) famous 'Derby Pie' recipe.  You can find a great history on the Derby pie here.  But more importantly Jason now makes his mum's famous pie on Derby weekend... a little taste of home when he is so far from it!


  • Unbaked Pie Shell
  • 3/4 cup of chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup of Pecans
  • 1/2 cup of melted butter
  • 1 jigger of bourbon (Jigger is a shot glass)

One unbaked pie shell. I use the deep dish.
Sprinkle 3/4 cup of chocolate chips in the bottom of the pie shell.
Beat 2 eggs, add 1 cup of sugar,  (can use one splenda), 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of pecans,
1/2 cup of melted butter and 1 jigger of bourbon. Mix all and pour into pie shell.
Preheat the oven and bake at 180 celsius for 35-40 minutes. Until brown on the top and pie is set.

Serve with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream!  YUM!

Thanks Rita for sharing the secret recipe and Jason for sending it in...

Hip Hip Hooray for all Mum's everywhere whose baking and cooking has brought years of joy and memories to sons and daughters everywhere!
