Recipe: Chess Pie

This is my grandmother's recipe for chess pie. I do not normally like custardy pies, but I have always loved chess pie. When I make it, i usually add a hint  of cinnamon or nutmeg to the mix. 

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 2tbsp cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 unbaked pie shell from your favorite recipe

Mix first 7 ingredients in order, pour into shell. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 30-40 minutes longer. Vinegar smell will disappear while cooking.
