Derby-Pie® Recipe?

It's top secret.

Derby-Pie® was developed over 50 years ago as the specialty pastry of the Melrose Inn, in Prospect, Kentucky. George Kern, manager of the restaurant, developed the Derby-Pie®  recipe with the help of his parents, Walter and Leaudra. The recipe remains a secret to this very day. Yes, we use real chocolate chips and premium walnut pieces – but no one has ever been able to duplicate our special filling and delicate crust.

There's only one Derby-Pie® chocolate nut pie. You can order it online here.

Serving Tip:


Golden Pecan pie is best served by slicing the pie frozen and warming for 15 minutes at 400°. Pull from the oven, scoop a dollop of vanilla ice cream on top, and enjoy the perfect ending to the perfect meal!

...incredible dessert.

My company recently ordered numerous Derby Pies for a fun function we were having at the office and it gave me my first opportunity to taste an incredible dessert. I am not a big dessert lover, but I couldn't get enough of this pie. AMAZING is all I can say. It's the best. I only wish the last piece wasn't gone yet, but unfortunately it is!"

With great thanks for a great pie.
