Simple Chess Pie Recipe
The Mouthwatering Monday Recipe is a Simple Chess Pie Recipe from H&P Artistry
This Mouthwatering Monday Simple Chess Pie Recipe is the first pie I ever learned to make. I love this pie just as much today as I did as a child. The recipe is one of those that many generations of Moms, Nanas, Nannies, and grandmas passed down and now I’m sharing it with you. The only difference from their recipe and mine is that they did not whisk the eggs to a fluffy consistency before adding the sugar and butter. Believe me the fluffy eggs make the pie texture better.
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Butter
1 tbsp Vanilla
1 Pie crust premade, frozen or homemade
Mix the eggs and vanilla with a hand mixer, stand mixer or whisk.
Whisk until thick and frothy.
In another bowl melt the butter and add it to the sugar.
Mix the butter into the sugar until it is cool and incorporated fully.
Slowly incorporate the sugar and butter mixture in to the egg and vanilla mixture a little at a time. Whisk well to incorporate and to keep the mixture fluffy.
Prep the pie crust by using a fork to dot the crust . This keeps the crust from filling with steam and expanding while the pie bakes.
Pour the pie batter into the shell and bake at 350* for 45 – 60 minutes. Oven temperatures and times may vary.
The pie is ready when it is golden brown and the center is not liquid. I broke the crust when I lifted the pie out of the oven. 🙁
Serve the pie as is or with your favorite topping.
