Are you making a pie for the Kentucky Derby? If you’re simply watching “quietly” from home, there’s still time, especially if you’re celebration will go into the evening and/or you’d prefer to enjoy your treats after dinner.
Here are three pie options—three to celebrate all those beautiful three-year olds running—to choose from, plus two cupcake options as a bonus!
~ Chocolate Walnut (or Pecan) Pie from Cook Eat Paleo ~ gluten free, grain free, dairy free, with paleo/primal option
~ Crustless Pecan Pie from Gluten Free Easily ~ gluten free, with dairy-free, refined sugar-free options
~ Grain-Free Maple Bourbon Pecan Tart from Tasty Yummies ~ gluten free, grain free, dairy free
And those bonus Kentucky Derby-appropriate cupcakes …
~ Not Derby Pie Cupcakes from In Johnna’s Kitchen ~ gluten free, dairy free
It seems that about 120,000 Mint Juleps are consumed at the Kentucky Derby each year. (Who knows how many are actually consumed all over the world?) Honestly, I’d prefer my Mint Julep in the form of this cupcake—also from In Johnna’s Kitchen—thank you!
~ Mint Julep Cupcakes (with Sugared Mint Leaves for topping, if you’d like) ~ gluten free, dairy free
May your horse—or favorite dessert—win!
