Hello everyone!

I am desperate to sort out the true and traditional way to make a Kentucky Derby Pie. I am aware of the patent; but my research have led me to many directions: with without cornmeal, flour, walnuts or pecans, to mix or lay the chocolate chip-nut mixture on the bottom of the crust, pre-baked or unbaked crust…etc.!

Though I have not tasted one in my life, I imagine it to be a chocolate-nut pie. A southern friend told me it is close to a Chess Pie and use cornmeal to help suspend the nuts and chocolate chips. This just added another variable in the equation.

Can some experienced pie bakers out there help?

Much appreciate it.

Hi Jack,

I live here in Louisville and have made Derby pie many, many times.  I can assure you there is no cornmeal in it and I would not consider it like a chess pie.  It’s more like a pecan pie with chocolate chips and bourbon added.  I would be glad to send you my recipe if you are interested.
