Oyster Pie

I asked my good friend, Nikki Merritt, for her "Oyster Pie" recipe. This is what she wrote.

"So tasty - It's a recipe from Will's side of the family and once I had it, it became a staple for our Thanksgiving dinners. You mix up some margarine and 2 cups crushed up oyster crackers & breadcrumbs and then sprinkle in the bottom of a baking dish. Add a layer of oysters, then more breadcrumbs, more oysters. Sprinkle with S&P [salt & pepper], then pour milk about 3/4 of the way up the oysters (not enough to cover them) and bake 350 until bubbly. Enjoy!"

She tells me that she uses a quart of oysters and does this in a 9" by 9" pan. Thank you, Nikki. :)

Bobbie's Chess Pie

Mother used to make this when we were children. I always loved this. By the way, the name supposedly is an adaptation of what ladies in the old south used to call "Just Pie."

Ingredients

1 stick of butter- melted
2 cups of sugar
2 Tablespoons of self-rising flour
4 eggs
1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
dash of salt
2/3 cup of buttermilk
2 thawed pie crusts - any kind (Pet Ritz shallow pie shells -not deep dish)

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and use a whisk or beat low with a mixer

Pour evenly into two pie shells and bake at 350 for 40 minutes - the top should be brown and crusted - serve hot or cold.
