A big hit with friends and family. A real treat for my friends in New England.
A few tips...
Pie is done when there is no wave while you pull out oven rack. Should be a firm top.
To prevent top from cracking, turn oven off, then crack door open. Let rest in oven 15 minutes.
Bake pie crust first. Make a collar around the crust with foil. Remove collar while pie is still hot.
Use white vinegar.
When I'm homesick for Texas, this is my serious comfort food. Thank you, Susie!
This was easier to make than previous versions I've tried, and the flavor was fantastic! Everyone here loved it. I served it with blueberries and strawberries - yum! Thank you for posting the recipe.
I didn't do the pie plain. I watched Food Network's 'Best Thing I Ever Ate' and was drooling over a pie they showed. It was a chess pie, with broken up Black & White cookies in it. Well, I used this as the chess pie portion of the creation, and it was great. Even though I didn't taste the pie plain, the overall taste was awesome, so it can't be that this pie is not! You know? :) The pie was amazing with one big b&w cookie broken into the bottom of the pie. Try it! I will try the pie plain next. Easiest pie ever!
