"This was the recipe I was looking for--remembered "Derby Pie" from my youth in KY as being like this, but the recipes I've always found have been more like a chocolate chip cookie and less like a peca..." See moren pie in consistency. This one was really good, but I did need to cook it a bit longer to keep it from being too runny. I would probably also reduce the amount of chocolate chips by about 1/4."
"Good taste, but I couldn't get it to be a little more solid even after cooking it a full 1/2 hour longer than suggested and decreasing the quantity of chips as recommended. Maybe I'll try refrigerati..." See moreng it before serving to firm it up, but overall it was received well at our Derby Party. Very rich...could have done with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to cut the richness."

I had enough filling for two regular pie shells, but spread chocolate chips in the bottom of each shell first, as they tend to ..." See moresink anyway. I also omitted the bourbon and soaked the walnuts in a little vanilla flavoring instead. 35 minutes seemed to be plenty of baking time. I have had problems using recipes for this pie in the past where I had problems with the pie setting up and not being too runny. That just seems to be a general problem with this pie; it was a bit runny with this recipe, too. Perhaps it needed to be baked longer…? However, it tasted delicious!"
