Buttermilk-Lemon Chess Pie. Chess pie, or “chest pie,” may have gotten its name from the small, tin-roofed cabinets that used to be common in kitchens for storing cooling pies and other baked goods. I think I could do this GF too!
Often referred to as a pantry pie because it can be made from pantry basics, chess pie is an old fashioned, southern fave. To cut the sweetness, use a bit of buttermilk instead of sweet milk and fresh lemon juice and zest, instead of vinegar.
This is just an old-fashioned chess pie. Best of all, you can't taste the buttermilk, and it's "so rich" :). Time for cooling pie is not included.This was first submitted on May 2006 to RecipeZaar,which was bought out by decided to post it here on June
