  • 1 9-inch pie crust , (homemade or store-bought)
  • ¼ cup (57g) Challenge Butter , melted (salted or unsalted, see note)
  • 1 ½ cups (300g) granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • Pinch salt see note
  • 1 tablespoon (8g) all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon (10g) cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) vinegar
  • ¼ cup (59ml) whole milk
  • 1 cup (170g) chocolate chips see note


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place your crust in a 9” pie plate and crimp edges as desired. Chill until ready to fill.
  • Whisk melted butter, sugar, and eggs until smooth. Add the salt, flour, cornmeal, vanilla, and vinegar, whisk until smooth, then whisk in milk. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Place the pie crust on a cookie sheet and fill with filling. Cover the edges of the crust with a pie shield or strips of foil to reduce browning. Bake for 38-48 minutes or until the top is golden and is mostly solid.
  • Cool completely before slicing (it slices best cold, but tastes better room temperature). Serve plain or with whipped cream or ice cream.



  • You can leave out the chocolate chips for a classic chess pie.
  • Use your favorite chocolate chips - semi-sweet or milk.
