I made this chess pie the other day and let me just say this is a great first pie for anyone to make! I looked up several recipes online, then just made up my own based on the ingredients. The risk of baking my first pie with a "new" recipe paid off with pleasant results.
First, the ingredients:
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 stick butter (melted)
2 cups sugar
1 (or more) teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons flour (or cornmeal)
1/2 cup buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 375F
Melt the butter. I like to cut mine up and put it in the microwave on defrost
While the butter is melting, unfold the pie crust into a pie plate:
Put the butter into your mixer and add the sugar and vanilla. Mix well.
Add the eggs (one at a time, mixing well between each). Add the flour and buttermilk. Mix until well blended.
Pour into the pie crust.
I didn't take a pic, but place a piece of foil over the pie to keep from getting too brown. No need to form it to the shape of the pie. The foil is just acting as a barrier. Bake in the over for about an hour. The pie is ready when a knife inserted comes out clean. Cool until slightly above room temp.
