Hill Family Derby Pie Recipe

Fancy Hats. Mint Juleps. Yep, this weekend is the Kentucky Derby! I honestly don’t know much about the Derby, but this week’s Give1 family does. The Hills were both were born and raised in Alabama but have a parent that grew up in Louisville. They have lots of memories of watching the Derby on TV and have attended this legendary event (albeit before their adoption budget).  They even have a family recipe for Derby pie, which is served not only on Derby Day, but also throughout the year!

So if you want to get festive this weekend, check out this yumminess:

Derby Pie 

  • 1 cup chocolate chips

  • 1 cup walnut or pecan pieces chopped

  • 2 eggs beaten

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1 stick butter melted and cooled

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1 unbaked pie shell

Mix sugar and flour.  Add eggs and then butter.  Add nuts, chocolate chips, and then vanilla. Pour mixture into pie shell.  Bake at 350 for 30-45 min.

As you enjoy this decadent treat, remember to donate! Every dollar helps the Hill family get one step closer to their daughter. And let me tell you, I’ve been following the Hill’s adoption blog for a while, and these people are the real deal. They are such a generous and loving family. They deserve every penny of your dollar.
