Connie’s Truly Southern Chess Pie

Flour-and-Eggs “Chess pie is Southern and simple – flour, sugar, eggs, butter. I add a couple of extras to give it some zing. Enjoy, and be sure to bless it before you eat!” Connie


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

-1/2 cup butter, melted

-1 tablespoon white vinegar or 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (if you’re out of the white kind)

-3 eggs, beaten well

-1 teaspoon vanilla

-1 teaspoon all-purpose flour

-1 teaspoon cornmeal, white or yellow it doesn’t matter but don’t use cornbread mix

-1 1/2 cup sugar

-1 9-inch deep-dish pie shell (unbaked).  (I used to make my own but now that I’m busy picking up after Dr. Bradford I use the already made up kind.)

Combine all the ingredients and pour in the pie shell and bake for 50-60 minutes or until set.  (If I were you I’d put this pie on a cookie sheet to bake in case it runs over the sides.  That sugary mess is real hard to clean out of the bottom of the oven.)

Let the pie cool so it can set up.  If you cut into it too early it will be runny.

Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy! (Just because the Good Lord wants us to be humble doesn’t mean you can only eat humble pie.)
