    BecR's Note:

    A rich lemony, buttery filling--this is superb eaten as a pudding, or in a pie (see tip for making pie)! Recipe was passed down to a Southern Living Editor from her late mother, Louise Floyd of Potter's Station, Alabama. Thank you Ms. Floyd, for sharing this lovely recipe with us!

      I was looking for a recipe like my grandmother's and found this. Made it for Thanksgiving 2014, after reading probably 30 chess pie recipes and deciding this one sounded right. It was great! I followed a few tips from other recipes, reduced the butter and also let it "cool" in the oven after turning off the heat. I think this allowed the middle to cook just right. I wanted to add this back into our family tradition and I'm so glad I found this. It's a keeper!

      Looking for a Lemon Chess Pie recipe like mine, I found this one. Just trying not to have to enter mine, yet to have a copy on line. Thank you for posting and saving me the time! Sweet/tart are right up there with sweet/salty for my taste buds!

      I made two different lemon chess pies so I have some points of comparison. This recipe won for the thickness of the pie filling and sweetness. It lost points in not having enough lemon flavor. I would definitely recommend increasing the lemon juice by at least another 1 tbsp. It is very sweet so additional lemon juice will not over-power the pie. As the cook, I loved that it was very easy to put together. I will be making again with additional lemon juice.
