Kentucky Derby Pie Recipe

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 8 servings
Calories: 669kcal
This is an extremely easy version of this soon-to-be-a-favorite pie. This recipe makes a large amount of batter, so be sure to use a 10-inch deep dish pie pan. A stoneware pie pan with high sides works well. When shaping and fluting the pie crust, make sure to bring the sides up high enough to hold all the Kentucky Derby Pecan Pie filling.
