Anna Maudeís Cheese Chess Pie


Iím told this recipe came from the old Oklahoma City Anna Maude Cafeteria. Not sure where I got this but the one thing I am sure about - is how really good this pie is, even though it is a dieterís nightmare or better yet, daydream, simply irresistible.


     1-1/2    cups Sugar

     3          tablespoons Flour

     1/8       teaspoon Salt

     1          teaspoon Baking Powder

     4          Egg Yolks

     3          tablespoons Butter, melted

     1          cup Milk

     1/3       cup grated Wisconsin or Cheddar Cheese

     1          whole Egg

     1          tablespoon Sugar

                 9-inch unbaked Pie Shell


Sift 1-1/2 cups sugar, flour, salt and baking powder together in a mixing bowl. Add egg yolks and beat well. Add melted butter, stir and set aside.


Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring 1 cup of milk to a boil, add cheese and stir until melted. Set aside to cool slightly while preparing the rest of the pie.


In a small bowl, beat together 1/3 cup milk, whole egg and 1-tablespoon sugar. Add to yolk mixture along with the cooled milk mixture. Beat well.


Pour into a 9-inch unbaked pie shell. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
