How to make it

  • Put dry beans into pie shell this will hopefully keep pie shell from bubbling up and make it lay flat, then put shell in oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Take out and let cool.
  • In a medium size bowl, combine sugar and butter and mix until crumbly.
  • Add one cup cream and mix thoroughly.
  • Add beaten egg one at a time, mixing after each addition, should be 4 eggs
  • Mix in flour
  • Add vanilla and mix altogether.
  • Remove beans from empty pie shell, discard beans.
  • Pour mixture into pie shell, place pie in middle rack of oven.
  • Bake @450 degrees for 15 minutes, lower heat to 350 and continue to bake for an additional 20 minutes.
  • Pie will be shakey in appearance, it will "jell" as it cools.
  • This is a rich tasting pie and absolutely delicious, it is also one of those pies that taste better after it has been in the refrigerator and cooled off. It really does taste better after the flavors have had a chance to intermingle and cool off. I have always been able to make two pies out of this. Unless you make a deep dish, then not. Enjoy!!!
  • Remember be kind to yourself, always.

    My mom used to make this & she also made a raisin pie that was basically a transparent pie with lots of raisins added. Super-good!

    I remember making a "Chess" pie when I was in high school. The recipe was similar to this one. I'll have to make this for the kids, tell them my story and watch the eyes roll!!
