Kentucky Derby Pie

Yesterday Husband and I were invited to a Derby Party. I'm not sure either one of us had ever watched The Kentucky Derby before yesterday, but we did enjoy ourselves. With a mint julep and a plate of goodies we cheered on the two horses we picked from the pot, Scat Daddy and Sedgefield. Our horses didn't win, Streetsense did, but it was fun, anyway.
A friend of mine was also going to the party, and we were trying to think of something to bring along. One of the teachers I work with suggested a Kentucky Derby Pie. I'd never heard of it, but we got the ingredients together and made the pie. Sort of a cross between a chocolate chip pie and a pecan pie. Tasty.
Here's the recipe:

Kentucky Derby Pie

1 baked pie shell
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup self rising flour
1 stick of butter, melted and cooled
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pecan pieces
1 cup chocolate chips
Mix the flour and the sugar and then stir in the other ingredients. Place in a the baked pie shell. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes. (I think you can use an unbaked pie shell and bake it for an hour.)
