Blossom Cafe Weekly Special - May Day Pie

In honor of the opening weekend for the Keeneland Fall Meet, Blossom Cafe is offering its May Day Pie.  This dish is a delicious blend of pecan pie with chocolate and just a touch of Kentucky bourbon.

May Day Pie
Recipe for Blossom Cafe's May Day Pie:

2 eggs, whipped
3/4 cup of flour
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of white sugar
2 sticks of melted butter
1/4 cup of light corn syrup
2 tablespoons of bourbon (slightly less than 1/4 cup)
1-1/4 cups of chopped pecans
1-1/4 cups of sweetened chocolate chips
2 pie crusts

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Blend the first four ingredients together.
3. Add the melted butter to the mixture and stir together.
4. Slowly mix in the remaining ingredients and blend slowly to maintain consistency.
5. Gently pour mixture into pie crust.  (Picture of unbaked pie to the right)
6. Bake 45-50 minutes.  The crust should be golden brown and the top layer of the pie should be nearly the same color.  The inside will still be soft until it cools, but the top should be firm when removed from oven.

I recommend warming the pie before eating it each time.  But it is fine at room temperature too.


P.S.  You gotta watch Bob or he will be after everything on the counter!


  1. Why do you need 2 crusts? Does this make 2 pies or is there a top crust?

  2. This looks yummy. I'm having my hubby print it so I can make it. Thanks.
