Neil Diamond Kentucky Derby Pie

Every January a friend of mine had a Neil Diamond Birthday party.  It is rediculiously fun with a game of "Neilo" (where we group sing the Neil Diamond songs we have on our Bingo cards) and Pin the Chest Hair on Neil".  We also bring food inspired by a Neil Diamond song.  This year I made a derivation of the famous Derby Pie inspired by the song "Kentucky Woman"

A note about corn syrup.  I searched specifically for a recipe that did not use corn syrup.  I know that there is no decisive evidence that corn syrup is metabolized differently than other sugars however I prefer to eat foods that are as close to natural as I can get them.  With that said maybe in the future I'll try this recipe with honey or maple syrup rather than refined sugars.

Here is the recipe:

1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter (melted)
2 eggs
1 T flour
1 T milk
1 t vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
9" pie shell

Combine all ingredients and pour into a 9" pie shell

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes covered in tinfoil.  Then 15-20 minutes uncovered.

note:  I forgot to add the flour and I had to cook it longer than the above instructions.
