This is just an old-fashioned chess pie. Best of all, you can't taste the buttermilk and it's "so rich." :) Time for cooling pie is not included.

Yum! This recipe bakes up the perfect deep dish chess pie. There's a sweet caramelized flavor with a light tanginess from the buttermilk. It browns perfectly when baking which makes for a lovely presentation. If you're looking for a delicious traditional Southern chess pie, give this one a try. Beautiful enough for a holiday dessert table, but easy enough to prepare just because it's Wednesday. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
