Gluten Free-Intolerant Chess Pie
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!
