Chess Pie is the Classic Southern Dessert You Have to Try

Screengrab via YouTube

If there’s one dessert that is truly a southern staple, it’s chess pie. It’s easy to whip up, has a wonderfully creamy taste, and has been passed down from generation to generation. It’s no surprise that one of the best versions of the pie comes from beloved YouTuber Nana’s Cookery, who knows southern cuisine like the band of her hand.

All you need to make this pie is a stick of melted butter, sugar, flour, apple cider vinegar, vanilla and three eggs. Naturally, you will also need a prepared pie shell. After you have gathered all your ingredients, you will simply need to mix everything together and fill up your pie shell. After baking for 35 minutes, you are ready to enjoy your pie.

If you’re more of a visual learner, watch the step-by-step instructions below.

This makes a beautifully golden, extremely sweet pie that you can enjoy with your family and friends. It is best to make your own pie shell because this will improve the flavor. However, if you are in a pinch, a pie shell you find at the grocery store will work just fine.
