Categories     Desserts     Pies     Vintage Pie Recipes     Chess Pie Recipes

Time 1h50m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 12

3 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts
4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
½ cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 cup heavy cream
½ cup white sugar
2 tablespoons butter at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the pie crusts in 3 pie pans, and set aside.
  • Beat together the eggs, sugar, melted butter, flour, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth, and stir in 1 cup of cream. Pour the mixture in equal amounts into the pie crusts.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the filling has set, about 35 minutes. Let the pies cool, and trim off the excess pie crust down to the top of the filling.
  • Place the brown sugar, 1 cup of cream, and 1/2 cup of sugar in a heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, bring to a boil, and cook, stirring constantly to prevent burning, until a candy thermometer reads 140 degrees F/60 degrees C, or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
  • Remove from the heat, and beat the mixture with a wooden spoon until thickened and cool. Stir in the butter and vanilla extract, and continue beating until the butter is incorporated, about 5 minutes. The icing should be thin and smooth, like a glaze.
  • Spread a thin layer of the caramel glaze on top of each pie, and firmly stack the pies together. Glaze the edges of the stacked pie.

Categories     dessert

Time 1h45m

Yield 12 Servings

Number Of Ingredients 12

1¼ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon sugar
1 stick chilled unsalted butter, cut in pieces
3 tablespoons ice water
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled
¼ cup Maker's Mark® Bourbon
½ cup all-purpose flour
1½ cups walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Remove the parchment and pie weights. Return the crust to the oven and continue baking until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly on a wire rack. 4. Meanwhile, make the filling: In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar. Continue whisking while adding the butter, then the bourbon. Stir in the flour until well combined. Stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips. Pour into the warm pie shell. 5. Bake until the filling is set and the top golden, about 30 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Serve warm or room temperature.

THE 10 MOST FAMOUS KENTUCKY DISHES

From thespruceeats.com
Estimated Reading Time 6 mins
  • Kentucky Derby Pie. This great Kentucky Derby pie is rich and deliciously decadent. The famed is a delicious combination of chocolate chips and walnuts in a sweet, buttery filling.
  • The Mint Julep. The mint julep is a time-honored sweetened Kentucky cocktail traditionally served at the Kentucky Derby, which runs annually on the first Saturday in May.
  • Kentucky Benedictine Spread or Dip. Benedictine is another famous dish from Louisville, Kentucky. The spread—or dip—was created by Jennie Benedict, a caterer and household editor for the Louisville Courier-Journal.
  • Southern Wilted Lettuce (Kilt Lettuce) This "kilt" (or killed) lettuce salad will bring back fond childhood memories to people who grew up in the Appalachian region of Kentucky.
  • Kentucky Bread Pudding With Bourbon Sauce. This fabulous bread pudding was shared by the Beaumont Inn of Harrodsburg, Kentucky. According to Nick Sundberg, the inn's chef at the time, the bread pudding was a favorite at Sunday brunch.
  • Bourbon Balls. Whiskey is made all over the world, but 95 percent of the world's bourbon comes from Kentucky. These sweet, slightly boozy bourbon balls are always a hit, and they are a delicious treat to make for holiday parties and gifts.
  • Owensboro Mutton Barbecue. Head to the Western Kentucky city of Owensboro for their unique mutton barbecue. The Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn and Old Hickory Bar-B-Q are two of the oldest barbecue restaurants in Owensboro, and they both offer mutton, beef, pork, and chicken.
  • Burgoo. There doesn't seem to be a definitive answer to how this stew came to be called "burgoo." Some say it might come from the French, as in bourguignon, while others claim it is named after an oatmeal porridge which was eaten by British sailors as early as 1700.
  • The Hot Brown Sandwich. Create in 1926, the hot brown sandwich has long been a Kentucky tradition. The sandwich was invented by Fred K. Schmidt, a chef at Louisville's Brown Hotel.
  • Kentucky Butter Cake. The Kentucky butter cake is so moist and rich that it needs no other embellishments. The rich buttermilk pound cake bakes in a Bundt or tube cake pan.
