Personally, I would eat something called “Kentucky Bourbon Pie” and shy away from something called “Derby Pie”...
I like pie!
"Better than a Derby"
That way anyone that actually KNEW what a derby pie could come up and have some. And no infringement.
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs (beaten)
1 cup english walnuts
1 cup chocolate chips
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1 ready-made pie crust
Mix flour and sugar. Add eggs, then butter. Add nuts, chocolate chips and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly.
Pour mixture into an unbaked pie shell.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 - 45 minutes. Test with tooth pick; pie should be chewy but not runny — Bake longer, if necessary.
