Lemon Chess Pie

This recipe comes from my mom, as does the German Chocolate Pie above. Chess Pie is a traditional Southern favorite, and I love this version.

Evelyn's Lemon Chess Pie

2 c. sugar
1 Tb. flour
1 Tb. cornmeal
2-4 Tb. lemon peel
4 eggs
1/4 c. melted butter
1/4 c. milk
1/4 c. lemon juice

Whisk together sugar, flour, and cornmeal in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Beat with mixer until smooth. Pour filling into unbaked 9" pie shell and bake 35 to 40 minutes at 350 or until the top is a golden brown.

Tip: for best results, use freshly grated lemon peel and fresh squeezed lemon juice. You'll need about 2 for enough juice.
