We live in Louisville, Ky. Around this time of the year, everyone around here gets pumped up for Derby season. The Kentucky Derby is the most famous horse racing event in the world. It’s also known as the “most exciting two minutes in sports.” If you’re from around here you know that we have parties and festivities for 2 weeks leading up to those quick 2 minutes. The kickoff to the Festival is Thunder Over Louisville, the largest Fireworks and combined Air Show in the United States! Which happens to have about 5 times the attendance as the actual Derby!
There are so many festivities and foods associated with the Festival and race, Mint Julep, Burgoo, etc. One of my favorites is Pegasus Pie. This recipe is SO easy to make, and you probably have just about everything already in your pantry! This version does not contain alcohol, we’re kid-friendly here!

1 Pie Crust
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup sugar

Going to take a wild guess and say the original has bourbon. Sounds good either way!
I’ve never heard of this kind of pie before. I like the chocolate chips! I bet it would also taste great with white chocolate chips or butterscotch ones.
I make this every year for Derby since I live here in Louisville, Kentucky! Turned out as beautiful as usual!!!
