Buttermilk Chess Pie

Buttermilk Chess Pie

This sweet and tangy buttermilk chess pie is made with a creamy custard filling with a slight texture from the cornmeal. It has a rich flavor that balances sweetness with a slight tang.

You can use a store-bought pie crust  or make a homemade one.

Combine sugar, cornmeal, nutmeg, salt, and flour in a large bowl. Mix well to ensure there are no lumps.

Add the melted butter, buttermilk, vanilla, and lemon juice to the dry ingredients. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined.

Whisk eggs in a separate bowl with a fork to combine them. Add the eggs to the rest of the filling and whisk until everything is combined.

Pour the filling into the crust.

Bake the pie in the preheated oven for approximately 35-40 minutes.

Let the finished pie cool right down to room temperature before serving. Dust with powdered sugar.
