  • Furr's Butter Chess Pie

    I am looking for a butter chess pie that is similar to a nut less pecan pie. Furr's Restaurant makes one but unfortunately they have moved and they will not give out that recipe. My Grandmother is turning 90 and loves this pie, I would love to surprise her with one, Can anyone help please??

    I recieved the recipes the manager at Furrs said she would send me of Chess pie. This is the recipe she said is the most like the one they make at Furrs.

    1 cup sugar
    1 cup butter
    3 egg yokes and 1 white
    3 tablespoons water
    1 tsp vanilla

    Cream butter and sugar as if for cake. Add egg yokes and the one white and beat untill foamy; add water and vanilla, again beating until well mixed. Pour this into a 9 inch unbaked pie shell and bake at 350 for anywhere from 35 to 1 hour. Test with clean knife. When it comes out clean(no custard clinging to it), the pie is done.

    I hope this works for everyone that is wanting the recipe.

    Happy baking :o)

    This recipe with the buttermilk is BY FAR the closest recipe I have found to the Furr's Pie.  It has been a while since I tasted it. But from what I can remember you hit the nail on the head!!! I have tried the one the company sent out and it is more a custard and not the right thing.  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I am not sure where you found it, but I have been searching for a couple of years now! my Grandma was elated when she saw it. and asked where the rest of the pie was when I gave her a slice to try to see what she thought about it. So again! Thank you!!!
