Shop and Bake, Gotta Love it!
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of butter (softened)
1 cup of milk
1 tbsp cornmeal
pinch of salt, about 1/4 teaspoon
2 tbsp lemon zest
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 9 inch pie shells, store bought
I really miss having a gas oven, Amazon has some great deals.
Preheat oven to 350f degrees
Add the sugar and butter, mix about
1 minute until well incorporated.
Add eggs and beat until light and
fluffy. Add the milk,flour, cornmeal,
salt, lemon zest, and lemon juice
continue mixing for another minute
until everything is well incorporated
Pour half of the filling in each of the
pie shells and place on a baking pan
in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes,
or until top is golden and the center
of the pie no longer jiggles when you
Cool to room temperature before cutting.
I usually refrigerate at least 30 minutes
I made this pie for my husband today, who has never had a chess pie and he loved it..It has a smooth lemon custard like taste. It’s a very easy pie to make and one of my all time favorites.
