Derby Pie

My husband served an LDS mission in Kentucky.  He got to get to know some good 'ole Southern cooking.  His first Thanksgiving back, he said we had to make this pie, and he did just that (in fact, he made 2 :)  

I love the twist this gives on a traditional pecan pie, and how could it not?  Chocolate makes everything better, right!?

Derby Pie
From: A Taste of My Old Kentucky Home cookbook

2 Regular pie shells (not deep dish)
4 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. Karo syrup
1 stick butter or margarine, melted
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. chopped pecans
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. flour

Mix all ingredients and pour into 2 pie shells. bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. (put tinfoil around edges so they don't get too brown)
