For the Mini Pies for the KY Derby, you will need:
2 rolled pie crusts
In a separate bowl, melt the butter and let cool.
In a third bowl, mix the chocolate chips...
...with the walnuts.
Unroll your pie crusts on a non-stick surface.
Using a small bowl a little larger than the cupcake or muffin tin openings, cut out the round pie crusts that will become the pie shell for each mini pie.
The 2 pie crusts will make about 22 pie shells (you will have to take the excess pieces and roll out again using a rolling pin to cut more circles).
Take the 22 circles and push them down into the muffin pan. I used a non-stick pan. If you are not using a non-stick pan, be sure to grease the edges and bottom before putting the crust in.
Once the butter has cooled, add the slightly beaten eggs to the butter and whisk. If the butter was not cooled it would cook your eggs!
