This classic chess pie is a family favorite.

Chess Pie is sometimes called vinegar pie because you put vinegar in the recipe.  This is one of my favorite pies.  If you have never made chess pie, you will love it. It is perfect for any gathering as most people love it. You may also want to try our pineapple chess pie.

Pie Ingredients

1 deep dish pie shell
1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
3 eggs
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon cornmeal (I used white self-rising cornmeal)
1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar

Melt butter in microwave and set aside.  Beat sugar, cornmeal and eggs in a bowl with mixer.  Add buttermilk, vinegar and vanilla.  With a spoon stir in melted butter.  Pour into pie crust.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.  Turn off oven and leave pie in oven until oven cools.
