Lemon chess pie

A chess pie is a custard pie with no top. This can be made with lemon juice, rather than the juice of fresh lemons, meaning you can throw this pie together in the dead of winter with basic pantry ingredients. In fact, with bulk dry ingredients, lemon juice, and a homemade pie shell, you could put this whole pie together for less than $1. Fresh lemons are best, though.

2 cups sugar
2 tablespoons flour
juice of two lemons
1/2 stick melted butter
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1/4 cup milk
3 slightly beaten eggs

Mix sugar, cornmeal and flour. Add eggs. Add rest, pour into an unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
