me oh my pie {week 19}

In our neck of the woods, early May is Derby time.

Derby time calls for Derby pie.

I think this pie is the first pie I remember making on my own, in my own tiny kitchen, in college. It’s the first pie I think of taking to any shindig. And it’s a great pie for a beginner because all the buttery, chocolatey, goodness won’t fail you. It’s the kinda pie you throw together in a jiff and let the oven make something wonderful. This crowd-pleaser of a pie will be one of your go-to recipes soon too…
