DERBY-PIE® Recipe

We developed the Derby Pie
Recipe 50 years ago. 

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!
