Several years ago I had dinner at a friends house and she served the most incredible pie for dessert. I had to have the recipe.
Kentucky Derby Pie
1 cup chocolate chips
1 stick of melted butter
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spread the chocolate chips in bottom of uncooked piecrust. Then mix the melted butter, eggs, sugar, flour, and vanilla. Pour batter over the piecrust. Cover the pie with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes.
Best served hot with vanilla ice cream.
Do you Twitter? Well, you should. Because Twitter is awesome. Twitter will change your life. At least, it changed my life. On Sunday, during the Super Bowl, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram announced a Twitter contest (you can follow them @startelegram).
“Happy #SuperBowl Sunday DFW! Follow @dfwsuperbowl, post your own tweets w/ #sbst Best post gets an iPod Touch! #sb45 #packers #steelers”
Seriously awesome prize, right? So imagine my disbelief when they sent me a message saying that I was the winner! Yep, little old me won an iPod Touch for tweeting. And what was my winning tweet?
“Went out on the front porch to watch the jets fly over the stadium during the national anthem. Yes, I live that close. It’s awesome.”
Here’s the write-up that the paper did online:
Winning Twitter post notes flyover by jets
One other really cool thing about this years Super Bowl? It set the record for the largest television audience for a single broadcast.
