My favorite pie to make recently is Chess Pie. The rumor is that the name comes from someone being asked what kind of pie it was and the reply was it’s Just Pie – which was misunderstood to be Chess Pie…. this pie is really rich. It is mainly made up of eggs and sugar, but I like it once in a while.
Mix the butter, sugar and vanilla together then mix in the eggs, and stir in the cornmeal, evaporated milk and vinegar until smooth.
Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce heat to 300 degrees F for 40 minutes or until appears solid (doesn’t jiggle). Enjoy! I like mine plain but some people eat with cool whip.
