  3. I have never heard of such a pie...it looks like a sugar cream pie. I can't even imagine cornmeal and vinegar in pie. LOL. You are a good cook, you always make things look so good. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  8. I'am still moaning the loss of my Chess Pie recipe.... We've made a few moves in recent years and it has come up missing.... Mine had pecans in it though and hubby loved it because it wasn't as sweet as a regular pecan pie.. But i know it didn't have vinegar, cornmeal, or buttermilk in it... sigh... Its funny i don't care for it but the family they love it...lol Have you ever heard of or made a Shoo Fly Pie??? My Pennsylvania / New Jersey roots are showing... :) . Hugs! deb
