This recipe is for the old fashioned Chess Pie like you purchased from your local bakery. The Chess Pie that was served to us during elementary school years in the cafeteria.

Should be creamy and the consistency of pudding unlike the varieties that seem to be Pecan Pie without the pecans.

You can make your own pie crust or use the Pillsbury Refrigerated ones.

Enjoy!

How to Make Drema's Southern Bakers Chess Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease, dust with flour, shake and remove excess flour from pie tin (or glass). Place prepared or packaged pie crust in tin. Press over bottom and sides with floured fingers. (I throw a dusting of flour over bottom of pie crust) Trim and flute the pie crust edges to your liking. Prick the bottom of crust. Place in oven and bake until lightly cooked (about 10 minutes). Remove and allow to cool.

  • 3Remove pie crust and allow to cool for about 15 minutes. Pour filling into pie crust and bake approximately 30 minutes on 350 degrees or till sets up. (Do not overcook)
