Butter Chess Pie



This is one of my all-time favorite pies!   We made it last week for Pi Day and it was SO delicious.  It has a custard-type of filling.  I've been told that it tastes almost like pecan pie without the pecans.  I'm not a big pecan pie person, so I can't confirm that.  But maybe you would like to.

Butter Chess Pie
2 cups sugar
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
5 large eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 unbaked 9" pie crust
*****
Combine sugar and flour in a large bowl.  Add in the eggs and the buttermilk, blending well.  Next, stir in butter and vanilla.  Pour into the unbaked pie crust.  Bake at 350F for 45 minutes or until set (center should be set with a slight jiggle).  Cool on a wire rack.

My Grandmother made wonderful Chess pie when I was little. I can imagine that smell just looking at your picture. I called it cheese pie and everyone but my Grandmother thought I meant cheesecake. I'll have to try your version.
