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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Bake in 450 degree oven until crust begins to brown (about 10 minutes).
  3. 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.
