Here is a sweet variation of the traditional Southern Chess Pie. I love this richness of it and of course, chocolate is always a good thing! Hah! Serves 8.
1 8 inch pie shell
1 can condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsps cornmeal
1/4 cup butter
2 squares baking chocolate
Make your pie shell, like so.
In a mixing bowl, mix together the condensed milk, evaporated milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and cornmeal. Mix on medium for a minute or two till well blended.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter, and add the chocolate squares. Melt on medium heat, mixing together with a spoon. Pour into the rest of the pie mixture, and blend another minute. Now pour everything into your prepared pie shell. Bake in a 375F preheated oven, about 45 minutes to an hour. You want the top of your pie to be brown.
About 9 points a serving! It's simple, sweet and chocolate. What can be better than that?
P.S. Another variation is the Lemon Chess Pie. Simply substitute 1/3 cup lemon juice for the butter and chocolate! Yum!
