This Southern Indiana pie is known as Memorial Chess Pie in memory of Josie who often prepared this pie for church socials and community events.

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp corn meal
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tsp vanilla

Cream together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cornmeal, and flour. Add the eggs, milk, lemon juice, and vanilla, combining well. Pour the mixture into an unbaked pie shell and bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake another 30 to 35 minutes until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
