I have always been fascinated by how people cooked historically.  One of my favorite places to visit is the Hubbardton Battlefield where they reenact the Battle of Hubbardton (a battle during the American Revolution).  I love watching the women cook over an open fire. I have been known to sit down on the couch with an old fashioned cookbook and read it cover to cover.  When I found a chess pie recipe in the Gooseberry Patch Hometown Christmas cookbook I was sent for review, I knew I needed to show you how to make chess pie.

Chess Pie is a recipe that was brought over from England originally. It is an egg-based pie that is similar to a buttermilk pie or vinegar pie.  Vinegar pie typically has the addition of vinegar and Chess pie has the addition of cornmeal.  If you have never had this type of pie before, imagine a Pecan pie but without the corn syrup or the pecans. A popular southern variation is a Lemon Chess pie which is basically a Chess pie with the addition of lemon juice. Chess pie is a sweet pie that is often served with a cup of tea or glass of milk to cut the sweetness. Posted with permission.
