A bit of Southern Charm

And about 1000 calories. So lots of people i've talked to recently in the internet world have no idea what chess pie is. while i must admit before i moved to TN i also was ignorant of this masterpiece, it has become my favorite dessert at any potluck or party i'm at. It is so tooth-jaringly sweet that just thinking about it makes me want a glass of milk. recipe courtesy of Allrecipes.com

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 5 eggs
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine sugar and flour. Beat in the eggs and buttermilk until blended. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla. Pour filling into the pie crust.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until filling is set.
Only 4 more days to go until i can take a day off from blogging!
