"This is a very old recipe that I got from a friend. This version of the classic sweet, rich Chess Pie includes evaporated milk and crunchy cornmeal." — SAUNDRA

I was a little nervous when making this pie because I never seen or heard of it before, but the ingredients are what peaked my curiousity & of course my Grandmother's confirmation that it's old favorite. Well it was truly delicious. I made 2 for Thanksgiving. Instead of using all Vanilla Extract, I added 1/2 Tblspn. of Vanilla Extract & 1/2 Tblspn. Lemon Extract. Next time I won't preheat the oven too long, there was too much spilling over & I'll use a deep dish pie crust. This is a keeper.
This was definitely an easy recipe to prepare. However, I found that the top gets too brown when you cook it for an hour. I would suggest covering the top with aluminum foil to prevent this. I had hoped the final result would be a little lighter.
Is this recipe using condensed milk or evaporated milk. In the summary states condensed, but in recipe states evaporated. Used this recipe with the evaporated and seemed to be runny after cooking. Let it cook for another 20 minutes and filling was thicker, but was very sweet.
Just like I remember as a kid! I brought this little taste of the south to Denver and it was a winner! Thanks for the memories.
JUST MADE THIS PIE, I MADE A FEW MINOR ADJUSTMENTS AND IT TURNED OUT GREAT! I WILL DEFINATELY MAKE THIS PIE AGAIN!!
This was delish! I had never had Chess Pie but my husband requested it. It's so easy to make and the custard center was smooth and creamy. Loved it. Thanks!
This is one of my favorite chess pie recipes, my grandmother says that it is better than hers and she is going on 80. Chess pie is my favorite and I just love this recipe hands down.
Excellent recipe! This is definitely a keeper.I found out it needs an extra 15 to 20 minutes more on bake time for firming the center of pie.Other then that it's the best I've ever tasted. KUDOS!!!
