I can never say how much I love these pies. Chess, lemon chess, buttermilk, and yes the old vinegar pie. That is unless we are talking chocolate chess or chocolate buttermilk pies..........nummy nummy in the tummy

Robert the pie should set up all the way through by the time it cools.

Ok, I made this pie Saturday and followed the directions exactly, however the pie was still partly gooey in the center; is it supposed to be this way? The picture on the recipe doesn't show any goo, so I'm thinking it wasn't done.

Should the pie pass a toothpick test prior to coming out? Please help.

My mom has been gone for 22 years now and this pie is just one of the many memories she left behind. I make it occasionally and every time I share it with my company, they say they have never heard of it but they love it. I was beginning to think we were the only ones who knew about it. I'm so happy to see that someone has finally posted it. It's a melt in your mouth, sweet, creamy and heavenly kind of pie. Everyone needs to try it at least once. Thanks for posting it Erin.
