Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Chess Pie on the menu? Try pairing with Cream Sherry, Sparkling Wine, and Riesling. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. One wine you could try is NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry. It has 5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 19 dollars.

NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry

Very aromatic with notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a touch of oak followed by sweet raisins and a touch of yeast. Clean lasting finish. Good now but will reward those allow it to age"". A favorite pre-prandial beverage. Consider it with nuts before dinner as an aperitif, or after dinner with dessert, especially chocolates and fruit-based desserts. Also wonderful on cold afternoons, served with biscotti to dip in ""Italian-style"". "

Instructions

Pie: Preheat oven to 350 degrees, 180 C, Gas Mark 4. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar and salt with an electric mixer set to medium low. Add flour and polenta, mix well. Next add the eggs, milk, and vanilla, (if you would like to add lemon juice and zest, add now). Pour into pastry shell. Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Serve the plain recipe warm or cold with caramel sauce drizzled over (recipe follows). The lemon flavor pie is best served with whipped cream. Sauce: In a small sauce pan over a medium heat, melt butter. Add brown sugar and cook until it is completely dissolved and simmering.
