Pineapple Chess Pie - TSLCChess Pie can be made in so many different ways and is one of my favorites.  This Pineapple Chess Pie is delicious and easy to make.

1 deep dish pie shell

1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons or 1 stick butter or margarine, melted

1 1/2 cups white granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cornmeal

4 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup coconut (Optional)

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple in syrup,  undrained

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Melt butter and set aside.  Beat together sugar, cornmeal, eggs and vanilla extract.  Stir in butter, pineapple, coconut and flour.  Pour into pie crust, bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool and Enjoy!

Note:  If you don’t want your pie crust to get brown around the edges, you can cover the edges with foil while cooking. We like it brown.

  3. it says “1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple in syrup, undrained”

  4. Why is it called a ‘chess’ pie?

    • There is little association between the game of chess and chess pie. Some suggest initial recipes for this pie may have derived from Chesterton England. Others venture that the name chess pie may be a corruption of cheese pie. Yet the recipes certainly do not call for cheese. However, the curd texture of cheese pie is somewhat similar to chess pie.

  5. 1 cup coconut ? What do y mean extract,fresh,dryed I’m lost on that

  6. what can i use to replace cornmeal
