I moved up north 4 years ago. I have not had a piece of chess pie since I got here! Thanksgiving comming up and I decided it was my duty to introduce the family to one of the delights of southern living.
I never made a chess pie before. I looked on the web and found several recipes. I tried three of the most likely candidates and all were good in their own way, so I decided to do the only locical thing and made a forth pie. My own concoction was the best of the bunch.
1 stick butter
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 ts vinilla
melt the butter and combine all ingredients beating well. our int o9" pie crust and bake 1 hour @ 350

Follow up report.
Field test of the Chess Pie recepe. (It was a rough job but some one had to do it!)
I did have assistance from the combined forces of three major family units. They consumed not only the recipe above but also most of the combined experimental units used in the development of the above recipe.
There were a total of 4 chess pies involved along with one chocolate, two pumpkin and one apple unit.
The result of this effort was that, without knowledge of any test in progress, the 17 people present consumed more than half of each pie. However, they left not one crumb ramaining in the pan that held the above recipe. Two of the subjects even refused to put icecream on top of the creation, stating that it would ruin the flavor experience.
I must add that this was a diverse group of people ranging in age from one year old well into the geezer status. Meaning that this pie is good with or without teeth!

I have never heard of a chess pie before, but if everyone was eating it, must have been good.

When I moved from the north 20+ years ago, I had not ever heard of chess pie. When I first tasted it, I thought it tasted like pecan pie without the pecans. An improvement. :chocoholic:

Ihave been cooking chess pies for many years...you can make it a lemon chess pie by substituting lemon flavor for the vanilla, if you want a pecan chess pie, you can add chopped pecans to the recipe.....
