Isn’t World Famous Kentucky Horse Race Whose Name Rhymes with “Herbie” Pie just a gussied up pecan pie with chocolate chips and whiskey added? You could say that. For some, panettone is just brioche with candied fruit added. It’s true that at its heart World Famous Kentucky Horse Race Whose Name Rhymes with “Herbie” Pie is the same sort of corn syrup custard, just with more and different types of flavorings, i.e. walnuts instead of pecans, chocolate chips and bourbon.
