Chess Pie Bars
I made these for my uncle Bobby yesterday. I guess everyone likes them b/c there is only two left lol. Very easy and really good.
For the crust:
2C all purpose flour
3/4C cold butter, cut up
For the filling:
1 1/2 C Sugar
6 tbsp butter -melted
1 tbsp cornmeal
1 tsp white vinegar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13x9 baking dish w/cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the crust ingredients. Beat the flour,sugar,butter and salt on low speed til crumbly. You can use a good processor as well. Press mixture in bottom of pan about 1/2in up sides of the greased pan.
Bake the crust at 350 for 20 min or til very light brown.
Meanwhile,in a large bowl, beat the eggs and add sugar. Stir in the melted butter, cornmeal,vanilla and vinegar. Mix well. Pour filling over hot crust. Return to oven and continue baking 20-25min or until the filling is set. Filling may puff up during baking but will settle as it cools.
Cool the bars in the baking pan for 1 hr then cut into bars. store in well covered dish in the fridge.
