This is a classic derby pie recipe based on a Paula Deen recipe. I love to serve this warm with vanilla ice cream on the side. Heaven.

How to Make Chocolate Derby Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix together the eggs, sugar and melted chocolate.
  3. Add the flour and mix it all together; stir in the remaining ingredients (expect for the pie shells!).
  4. Spread the mixture into the pie shells. Bake for about 30 minutes. Take the pie out and let it set for a while. If the chocolate doesn't seem to come together firm enough for cutting, bake it for up to an additional 10 minutes (might want to put foil around pie crust edges). Serve warm with some ice cream. This pie does freeze well.
