which goes in some circles by the name of Derby®

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup (4 Tbsp.) cornstarch
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 9" unbaked pastry shell

Combine sugar and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Beat in eggs.  Mix in butter, vanilla, chocolate, and 
pecans.  Pour into pastry-lined pan.

Tear a strip of aluminum foil about 2" wide, and 
carefully cover edge of pastry to prevent overbrowning while pie bakes.

Bake at 350* for 40 minutes, until puffy, firm, and
lightly browned ... until knife inserted in center of
pie comes out greasy but not sticky.

Serve in small slices with whipped cream, vanilla ice
cream, or plain.

Makes 6-8 servings.

Note:  This pie is very rich and indulgent, and 
should only be eaten in small pieces...
