Vintage Recipe for Chess Pie

Vintage Recipe for Chess Pie
This was my favorite pie as a child. My grandmother made it – anytime I asked. And I wonder why I’m so fluffy. Ha! When I grew up and had kids, I made it for them. Turns out it became their favorite pie, too. It’s still a family favorite. And so easy! This particular recipe came from a church cookbook, but it is as close to Mamaw's "little of this, little of that" recipe I've found. You’ll need an unbaked pie shell. I use the store bought kind. They’re better than any I can make.

Ingredients
  1. 1-1/2 cup sugar
  2. 1/2 cup (one stick) butter
  3. 3 eggs
  4. 1 Tablespoon cornmeal
  5. 1 teaspoon vinegar
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Beat slightly (that’s important). It will have a slightly lumpy texture.
  3. Pour into the unbaked pie shell
  4. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean. I usually bake it a bit longer than 45 minutes.
Notes
  1. What could be easier than that? And yes, the crust should crack. It rises as it’s cooking, then falls when it’s cooling.
