    I've tried several recipes in the last fifteen years, trying to get this right. I finally got this and my pies come out excellent. I have made a few changes to this recipe. I do not use any milk and I only use one cup of sugar. Vinegar, cornmeal . eggs and flour. The pie is sooo good.

    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*
