Derby Pie……

Pie.  Not something I EVER make.  It’s the crust.  I am always scared of the crust.  That was until my friend Ashley gave me a easy recipe!  It literally mixes together in two seconds in a bowl, and press into the pan.  It is good for quiche and pies, though for pies I would add about 1 to 2 teaspoons of sugar to the pie crust.

Now onto the filling.  This is a simple pie.  Chocolate chips, walnuts or pecans and a cooked filling. Pour in crust and bake.

I took this to my in-laws one night for dinner.  They all said it was just “ok”. Then they ate another piece of it……

We also established that my mother in law has 2 favorites when it come to pie. 1) Pumpkin pie, 2) Pie.  Yes, pie.  Let’s say she isn’t real picky.

One other tip! Serve this pie warm.  When it is cool, it isn’t as yummy as warm!  Awesome with ice cream!
