We developed the Derby Pie
Recipe 50 years ago.
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.
Derby-Pie® is best served by slicing frozen and serving warm. We recommend 12 minutes at 350º. The pie will come out of the oven with a perfect, flaky crust. It will be warm, toasty, and ready-to-eat, a perfect blend of sweet, crunchy goodness that will satisfy your innate need for chocolate. Grandma Leaudra liked it with a dollop of whipped cream on top-but you may discover your own way.Share your serving tips with us on Facebook
