Specialty Recipe

Lemon Chess Pie

A favorite throughout the South, chess pie takes its name from the description given by a cook who was asked what kind of pie it was and replied, "It 'jes pie, honey."

Ingredients:
2 whole eggs
4 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon flour
1 Tablespoon yellow cornmeal
4 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon grated lemon rind
One 9-inch pie crust, unbaked

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat eggs, yolks, and sugar together at high speed for two minutes. Add butter and cream; beat again at high speed for two minutes. Add flour, cornmeal, lemon juice and rind; mix well. Pour into crust and bake 30 to 40 minutes until top is medium brown. (Do not overbake; pie will set somewhat while cooling.) Allow to cool to room temperature before serving with whipped cream topping if desired.

Serves: 6 (one slice per serving)
