Kentucky Derby Pie

It is amazing how food can touch our lives and leave wonderful memories!  I will never forget the first time I tasted "Kentucky Derby Pie".  I was in the 3rd or 4th grade, and was visiting my friend Leigh Ann Utley.  Her mother (Ann) baked this pie and she called it "Kentucky Derby Pie"  It was love at first bite!  *See I told you I love food, always have*
I begged my Mom to bake the pie... She tried it, and bombed terrible..(Sorry Mom, but it was bad)...  I tried to make it when I was in like the 4th grade , bombed again...

Recently I started baking pies, and my old friend Leigh Ann and I are blessed to be friends on FB.  She shared the recipe for "Kentucky Derby Pie" and that night I had to make it!  
It was wonderful!  But I will say, nothing can top Ann's pie.  Honestly, that pie was the best and I could try to make it 10 more times and I don't think I could re-create it to be as tasty as Ann's!

Thank you so much Ann Utley & Leigh Ann Hoffman for sharing the recipe with me!
