Derby Pie

This is basically a chocolate chip cookie in a pie crust – genius! Next time I’ll use a smaller pie pan.

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP Bourbon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c flour
1 c chocolate chips
1 c pecans1 frozen pie crust

Mix butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, bourbon and mix well. Add salt and flour, and mix well. Fold in pecans and chips. Pour mixture into pie crust and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

Let cool for 1-2 hours before slicing.

Serves 6-8.


Asparagus and Green Garlic Pizza

 It’s no secret I have a serious asparagus problem. Trust me of you had access to asparagus this fresh you would have a problem too!! If you are not a fan, the season is almost over so indulge me a couple weeks more. The combo of green garlic and asparagus is a match make in heaven.

10 oz thin asparagus spears, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 green garlic, shredded using the coarse side of a box grater
10 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
olive oil
1 pizza dough

Preheat over to 500 with a baking steel or pizza stone inside.

Roll out dough. Drizzle with olive oil. Top with green garlic, cheese, and asparagus. 

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes until the crust is brown and cheese is bubbling.

Serves 4.
