Thanksgiving is next week! Eek! :) I love when my family gets together but nothing stresses me out more than cooking for such a large group. It’s a little scary! haha! Will everyone like what I cook or will it be a big flop? So one of my biggest holiday cooking tips is to make a recipe you know for sure will turn out! Do you remember my famous lasagna recipe story? ;)
Well, today I am excited to share one of my family’s favorite recipes that I know will turn out perfectly yummy every single time. My mom would make Southern Chess Pie (or Jeff Davis Pie) for us all the time growing up. So keep reading to get this yummy recipe, hear one more holiday tip AND I have a fun giveaway for you, too! Yay!
OK….before we get to the recipe let me share my other holiday cooking tip that will help keep you out of the kitchen scrubbing dishes & spending more time with your family ~ PAM Cooking Spray! PAM Cooking Spray is awesome at preventing your food from sticking to your pans. That means less time soaking & scrubbing those dishes. Yay! Annnnd now both of these cooking sprays leave up to 99% less residue build-up than margarine & other brands of cooking spray. Plus they are zero (yes, I said zero!) calories! Does that mean I can have two slices of pie? ha! ;)
When I called my mom to get this recipe she gave me a little history about the origin of this yummy pie. Originally the recipe came from England & was know as the Chess Pie. It became very popular in the South during the Civil War, & it became known as Jeff Davis Pie. Some add pecans to the recipe but I’ve never had it that way. It is very rich, and it can be served with whipped cream, a lemon wedge or all by itself.
1/2 cup of softened butter
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 cup of cream or milk
2 tablespoons of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 9 inch unbaked single pie crust shell
Preheat over to 425°.
Mix the sugar & flour together in a large bowl. Add softened butter, eggs, milk or cream & vanilla. Pour into an unbaked 9 inch pie shell. Bake for 10 minutes at 425°, and then reduce the temperature to 350°. Bake for another 45-50 minutes until the center is firm.
This pie is delicious with a tall glass of cold milk. :)
