Southern Chess Pie

This is a nice, sweet pie traditionally made in the Southern United States. What sets it apart is the addition of cornmeal. Makes a wonderful dessert to round off a meal. Serves 8.

1 8-inch pie crust, see here
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsps cornmeal
1 tbsp flour

Prepare Pie Crust. Set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the eggs, condensed milk, sugar and vanilla extract. Add the cornmeal and flour and mix well, for about 2 minutes on medium. Pour into prepared pie crust and put into a preheated 350F oven. Bake for about 45 minutes. You would want it firm to the touch, and has a thin golden brown crust on top.

Nice, creamy and satisfying. 9 points per slice. Watch out! It is so rich and good!

Help yourself!
