The Pastor grew up eating his grandmother’s chess pie. He made a request a while back for chess pie. I now have the perfect chess pie recipe. Here it is if you are a chess pie person:
2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons of butter
4 tablespoons of flour
5 egg yolks & 5 egg whites (separate the two, and beat the whites … so sad.)
1 cup milk
dash of salt (1/2 teaspoon for those that measure)
dash of nutmeg (1/2 teaspoon for those that measure)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 unbaked pie shells (make ’em or buy ’em)
Mix the sugar, butter, and egg yolks. Add your salt, nutmeg, vanilla, and milk. (I really like to go a little heavier on the vanilla than 1 teaspoon, I LOVE vanilla. You can also be a little heavy handed on the nutmeg, too. Closer to 1 teaspoon of nutmeg really gives your pie a little extra something something.) Fold in the beaten egg whites. Pour you pie filling into your two pie shells and bake ’em up at 350. They’ll take about 30 minutes. You can really tell with the chess pies when they are done, because the top slightly browns and you can really see it.
Since this one makes 2 pies, you’ll get around 15 servings from this recipe. The Pastor approves of this pie! Happy eating!
