Most people don’t know, but I spent a semester of college in Berea Kentucky. If you don’t know where that it is its about an hour from Lexington, and has one of the only schools in the country where tuition is 100% free for every student. During that semester, I was introduced to Kentucky Derby Pie. My friend T took me home for a weekend, so that I could go to a car show. Well , I didn’t get to go to the car show. He instead took me to a flashover training that was going on at his volunteer fire department. While it was cool to see the training, and the hot fire fighters. The pie was a highlight of my weekend. We had it for dessert one of the nights I was there.

Its been almost ten years since I was there, but I still love this pie. This pie will forever be one of my favorites, and I am sure it will be one of yours to. Top it with some vanilla ice cream, and you will be in HEAVEN. Keep reading to find out how to make this amazing pie.
