BUTTERMILK CHESS PIE....A BITE OF SOUTHERN CHARM!



It's summertime!
Time to relax, party and escape the daily grind.

Estelle's is a Southern Kitchen.
You can drop by anytime and have a glass of sweet tea and a piece of pie.
Just like my Mother's Mississippi kitchen......

What's the difference between LIKE and LOVE?
A good chess pie
made
with buttermilk 
and
a touch of lemon! 


SOUTHERN BUTTERMILK CHESS PIE
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 rounded T. yellow cornmeal
2 rounded T. flour
¼ t. salt
1/2 cup of butter, melted & cooled
1/2 cup of buttermilk
2 t. vanilla extract
4 large eggs
Zest from one lemon
Juice of 1/2 of fresh lemon
1 unbaked pie shell
Nutmeg



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the sugar, cornmeal, flour and salt. To that add the butter, buttermilk, and vanilla; mix. Beat the eggs, add and mix. Stir in lemon zest and juice. Pat pie crust into a 9- inch pie plate and pour mixture into the pie shell. Top with a little nutmeg.
