Gluten-Free Kentucky Derby Pie

I was on the hunt for a new pie idea and ran across a recipe for Kentucky Derby Pie in one of my Grandma’s old cookbooks. The original recipe called for lard, corn syrup and other gunk SO I modified it to clean up the ingredients. Man oh man, this is a winner! I mean honestly – a chocolate pecan pie?! Delicious. This one is also dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and can be made grain-free! Makes 8 servings. Okay – if you eat pie like us then maybe 4-6 servings ha!

To make pie
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, vanilla and butter until smooth. Stir in salt and flour. Fold in chocolate chips and pecans until combined. Pour filling in to prepared pie crust.
  2. Bake at 400F for about 45-55 minutes or until center is set and crust has started to brown. Let cool about an hour before serving to set.
To make pie crust
  1. In a large bowl, add dry ingredients. Cut in butter or shortening until pea size crumbles are created. Add in water, sour cream, vinegar and honey. Gently mix until just combined. Place dough on a floured sheet of parchment paper. Roll out into a large, thin circle. Flip the parchment paper onto a pie pan. Form edges as desired. If crust breaks or cracks, brush with a little water and form together with your hands.
