The filling is very simple to make. It tastes like a buttery, caramel custard and the caramel flavor comes from brown sugar. There’s no need to make or use an actual caramel sauce.

To get a little fancy, add a dollop of whipped cream or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Caramel Chess Pie
 
Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup flour, whisked or sifted to remove any clumps
  • 1 egg
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a medium heavy-bottomed pan, heat butter, both sugars, milk, and flour over medium heat. Stir constantly until butter is melted and sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Let cool 15 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg, egg yolks, vanilla, salt, and nutmeg together.
  4. Slowly whisk about 1 cup of butter mixture into eggs (this prevents them from curdling). Then whisk the egg mixture into the butter mixture.
  5. Pour into pie shell.
  6. Bake 10 minutes and then reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake 35 more minutes.
Notes
Let cool completely before slicing. I typically refrigerate it overnight.
