This is my great grandmother's recipe and a staple at our house for Thanksgiving.
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄3 cup buttermilk
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon flour, mixed with sugar
- 1 pie shell, uncooked
- 1⁄3 cup butter, melted
- Mix all ingredients.
- Bake in 450 degree oven until crust begins to brown (about 10 minutes).
- Reduce heat to 350; bake about 40 minutes until the pie does not shake in the middle. It will look very dark, and will fall some after you take it out of the oven.
I had never made chess pie before and my friend directed me to this recipe. I made it for my catering business and my clients loved it. I also ate a whole pie because it was so good. Thank you so much for the recipe. I have another southern chess pie in the oven right now.
Liked the pie but it is too sweet. I would cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups. Made it just like the recipe stated.
Amazing! There is nothing like memories from childhood. I grew up with this pie and this recipe is every bit as good as I remember it. Made for *PAC Spring 2009*
