Chess Pie-Southern Favorite
1 - 3/4
1 stick, melted
unbaked pie crust - Prepare the bottom of the pie crust by rubbing 1 TB softened butter on the bottom. Next
sprinkle 1 TB of sugar on top of the butter.
Preheat oven 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine the sugar, flour, cornmeal, and salt.
Add the wet ingredients which include the melted butter, buttermilk, vanilla, and four beaten eggs. Pour the mixture into the pie crust
Sprinkle with nutmeg or all-spice.
Bake for 45 minutes or until the filling is set.
The center of the pie will slightly giggle when it is ready. If you put a toothpick in the center of the pie, it should not be watery but you should have filling that sticks to the toothpick.
