How to Make Boone's Chess Custard
- Set oven to 400 degrees and in a bowl add sugar and melted butter. Mix it all together. Add the buttermilk.
- Add the salt, vanilla extract and beaten eggs. Mix again very thoroughly. Add the cornmeal and mix once more very good. Add the vinegar and mix it again.
- Pour into a pam sprayed round baking bowl. Bake it somewhere from fifty minutes to 1 hour. Check it halfway through baking time by sliding a clean knife in the middle and if comes out clean..and buttery..it is done. The top should be golden brown.
- Tip: This was original a pie, so can bake it into a pie crust. Same baking time, every thing the same. I just tried it recently without the crust, more as a custard and it turned out real good.
Tip: If don't have buttermile, use regular milk and add a few tablespoons of vinegar in it and you have buttermilk.....
Tip: Sometimes get tired of just the vanilla extract and change it to lemon. Everything else is the same..it turns out terrific.
Tip: We use real whipping cream, instead of cool whip. Just make it in the mixer and put some on the pie/custard. Bring it over the top..very good..favorite at all the holidays and then some..
