Thanksgiving is such a wonderful holiday. It basically involves three of my favorite things to do: thanking God for all his blessings, getting together with our family, and…eating! I seem to cook big meals for every holiday, but Thanksgiving is definitely one of those holidays that seems to center around food. We always have to have (among other things) turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole for Jonathan, rolls, and desserts.
When I was growing up, we went to my grandmother’s house every year for Thanksgiving. I always remember her having chess pie for dessert. She always had at least two or three desserts, but chess pie was always my favorite. So here’s my Thanksgiving gift to you: Bu’s Chess Pie recipe.
BU’S CHESS PIE
1 ¼ cup sugar
¾ stick butter or margarine, melted
1 Tablespoon meal
1 Tablespoon vinegar
3 Tablespoons milk (Pet milk is good if you have it)
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Beat eggs; add sugar, then meal, vinegar, milk and melted butter. Pour into an unbaked pie shell and cook at 325 degrees until done (about an hour or so). You can put a little lemon extract in it too if you wish.
