A True Kentucky favorite. Derby Pie® has been a southern tradition for more than 40 years. Made from a secret family recipe, Derby-Pie® combines rich semi sweet chocolate with English walnuts for a truly decadent experience.
The Derby-Pie® was created in 1950 by the Melrose Inn in Prospect, Kentucky as a specialty pastry. The restaurant’s owners and Derby-Pie® creators were Walter and Leaudra Kern, who constantly researched the optimal recipe for their creation. They were assisted by their son George Kern. The name “Derby-Pie®” was chosen because the various family members each had a different name for the creation, so to resolve the naming quandary they put the various names in a hat, and pulled out the paper which said “Derby-Pie®”.
Today, the 4th generation continues creating the world famous Derby-Pie®. Slowly and carefully using only the finest ingredients and focusing on quality before quantity. Kern’s offers the Derby-Pie® in two sizes, 9″ pie and a smaller tart version, suitable for a single serving. In addition, they recently introduced the first new addition in almost 50 years, the Golden Pecan Pie, with all the Southern you could ever ask for.
The Derby-Pie® is fully cooked, ready to warm and serve, or freeze for later use, (we suggest warming slightly as indicated on the box and maybe, just maybe, adding a dollop of whipped cream with a touch of good Kentucky bourbon…but that’s up to you). Serves 8 to 10.
Price includes gingham or seasonal bow ribbon and gift card with you message.
