One of the greatest pie recipes I ever made, and by far one of the easiest and most loved in the Chess Pie.  A southern pie of mysterious origin with deep conspiratorial has a unique flavor kinda like pecan pie with no pecans?  Oh and its made with vinegar but you’ll LOVE it.  I told you its weird sounding and very mysterious but its AMAZING! Word to the wise… Make it, let it sit out for 24hrs and thats when its best…..


  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (use the real stuff….)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • ¼ cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie shell


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

Step 2
In a large bowl, mix the butter, sugar and vanilla together. Mix in the eggs, then stir in the cornmeal, evaporated milk and vinegar until smooth.

Step 3
Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 40 minutes. Let cool and sit for 24hrs (on the counter)

Cut and serve!
