This southern classic is very rich. When I moved to OH and told someone that I was making this pie they said "What kinda pie is that"? I was in shock....I grew up on chess pie...must be a southern thing.
My sister-in-law gave me this basic pie crust recipe and I use it for a variety of items such as pies, tarts, savory pies and cobblers. When making this crust don't throw the leftover crust away...simply brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, place in the oven and bake till slightly brown. A nice little treat for the kids or yourself :).
This recipe comes from my great grandmother. I had to get my grandmother to come up with measurements instead of litttle bit this, little bit that. She always uses the shallow pie shells and makes two pies because my father can devour one himself. She topped it with meringue and browned in the oven but I have also used whip cream.
This is like no peanut butter pie I had ever had before. I was introduced to it in a restaurant in TN at a resort area called Watts Bar. It was the tallest pie I had ever seen, the meringue was at least 3"!
This is a recipe from my Great Grandmother. I can remember going to her house and sitting down to a lunch of Fried chicken, mash potatoes, green beans, fried corn, biscuits and fried peach pies for dessert. It is a wonder we didn't all die from heart disease but that is country living. These directions were written for me real countryfied so I explained best I could but you will get the jist. Make dough, fill it and fry it!
