    One more comment here. This post was originally named Derby Pie. But the food police came and made Chris change it. The name is trademarked. That is how serious this whole thing becomes. But no matter what they make me name it the real moniker is "Derby Pie".

    Cruising old recipes and old comments. UnSwissMiss, yes the original recipe (and current Ky Derby Pie) does call for walnuts. Most of us (me included) think of it as a chocolate pecan pie but it is not. At least according to the food historians I have read.

    !@#$%^&* Gonna have to learn to type these recipes when I'm sober. Thank you very much for the heads up. Yes, it is exactly that, 2 eggs, beaten. Changes made.

    Thanks again....

    Am I missing something, instructions say add eggs, ingrediants don't list eggs?
    I would guess 2 eggs?

    Walnuts, interesting. I thought we made ours with pecans, but then I grew up in Lexington...

    In the Kansas City area this pie is known as the Platte County Fair Pie and is served up at the Corner Cafe. I used to try to get this pie at the cafe but it was always sold out before I got there. It's delicious, by any name!
