Pi Day Pie

Happy Pi Day! In honor of 3/14, here’s a delicious recipe for Kentucky chocolate pecan pie, which is served at Churchill Downs and Kentucky Derby parties on Derby Day. We’re a little bit early for that celebration, but today we can make an exception.

Ingredients:
– 3 eggs, lightly beaten
– 1 cup of light corn syrup
– 1/2 cup of brown sugar, packed
– 1 cup of chopped pecans
– 1/4 teaspoon of salt
– 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
– 6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate morsels
– 1 9-inche deep dish pie shell, unbaked

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. Mix all ingredients and pour them into the pie shell.
3. Bake for 10 minutes, and then reduce the heat to 350 degrees; cook for another 35 minutes.
4. Let cool, and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

Enjoy!
