Well, who woulda thunk it? There's even a day to celebrate pie. Today, January 23rd, is National Pie Day. And I would be remiss if I did not share with you, my loyal and devoted readers, my all-time favorite pie.
A friend gave me this recipe for Derby Pie over 15 years ago. And I can assure you, it is our all-time-hands-down favorite. I can mix this up in about three minutes. It has just the perfect combination of yummy gooey-ness, pecans, and chocolate chips. I tell people that it tastes sort of like a chocolate chip cookie.
Give it a whirl and make your family smile on National Pie Day!
