Derby Pie

Continuing the bourbon baked goods theme.  I got this recipe from a friend of a friend; she's from Kentucky, so we'll go with the theory that it's an old Southern family recipe.  For all I know, it could be off the side of a box or something.

Good at any time, but particularly appropriate for the running of the Kentucky Derby.

1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell
2 eggs
1 c. sugar
1 stick butter (1/2 c.), melted and cooled
1/2 c. flour
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped nuts
1/4 c. bourbon
2 t vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350.  Beat eggs on high speed; on lower speed, gradually beat in sugar.  Alternating additions, fold in butter and flour. 

Stir in bourbon and vanilla; then stir in chocolate chips and nuts. 

2.  Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell. 

Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (except for any melted chocolate).  Best if served warm, but still pretty darn good at room temperature.
