I haven't had chess pie in years! Thanks for bringing it back into my life.


How have I never heard of Chess pie?


Go kelly! I will have to try this delish pie. I heart pie.


gonna whip one o' these up tonight :-)


hey, ever hear how Chess Pie got it's name, back during the war between the states there was a Union Soldier that was injuried and taken in by a southern family, the Mammy nursed this boy back to health and once he was well he begged her for the recipe for the wonderful pie she feed him, she said, O honey chil, that ches pie. (just pie)


I tried this recipe tonight and I dare say it needs a touch of vanilla to be Southern enough for me, but thanks a lot for the recipe.


is this a photo of this recipe or a borrowed photo?


I just found your blog today and am enjoying reading it. I have a question about the Chess Pie. Is the flour and Cornmeal self-rising or plain? Thanks.


I used regular cornmeal and self-rising flour (it was what I had on hand). I think the recipe was written for regular cornmeal and all-purpose flour. It should work either way.


my grandmothers recipe does not have vinigar does have corn starch but not flower or corn meal uses butter milk instead of regular milk an has vanilla. it is the perfect chess pie and is even better as lemon chess pie by just adding lemon juice to the recipe
