Mama's Chess Pie
How to Make Mama's Chess Pie
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Note* I love a flakey crust so have found this to help, while baking keep a beaten egg white handy, brush the unbaked pie shell bottom and sides with the beaten egg white and bake that for 7-minutes, let it cool then proceed on.
- Beat eggs and butter till lite and lemon colored. Sprinkle in the remaining dry ingredients. Then add the evaporated milk and vanilla.
- Pour this into the pie shell and bake for 55-65 minutes until set.
- NOTE* You can make this a lemon chess pie by adding 1/4 cup lemon juice and the zest from one lemon.
