Hi! I first want to say that this is the first pie I have ever baked! I am not a cook but after Thanksgiving I figured I would give it a try. I have eaten Chess Pie before and loved it. For my first time I was brave to alter the recipe but I did... I added a tablespoon of cornmeal and a teaspoon of white vinegar. Dont ask me why but it sounded good and luckly ended up being GREAT! My mom always added lemon juice to hers but I didnt really enjoy it that way. I cooked mine in a glass deep dish 9" pie dish. I did cook it for about 30 mins longer than suggested and let cool in oven. It was not soupy but set nicely and tasted wonderful. It browned and cracked perfectly on top. Be sure to put foil over the crust before you put it in or it will get too burnt. I remembered about 15 mins after I put it in and it was a hassle getting the foil on there since it was really liquidy and hot. All in all it was a great pie and super easy to make if I could do it. Plus an added bonus my home smells wonderful now!
