Chess Pie - "It's a Southern Tradition!" This pie is so hard to describe. The name, like many legends is rooted in mystery but has been a staple at dinner tables for generations.
What is Chess Pie? Well this pie has the consistency of a pecan pie without the pecans, but tastes more akin to a custard pie, but it is not custard. It is very similar to buttermilk pie and in some parts of the country; they refer to this as a sugar pie. All I can say is that the pie is made with butter, sugar, & eggs; a dash of cornmeal for texture, and a splash of vinegar for that sweet & sour twang!
Pie ingredients: Sugar, unsalted butter, unbleached flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), vegetable shortening, pasteurized egg whites, vinegar, vanilla, spices, corn starch, lemon juice, corn meal, salt. [This Product is made in a facility that processes: cinnamon, eggs, dairy, gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, & wheat.]
