Nana's Brown Butter Chess Pie is unlike any dessert recipe you've had before. This Southern recipe is made with brown butter for a rich, nutty flavor that is out of this world. To make the brown butter, simply cook it in a frying pan until it starts to foam and turn brown. This recipe also includes a homemade recipe for pie crust that only requires five ingredients. After the pie crust has chilled, roll it out and place it in the pie plate. To make the filling, add whisked eggs, flour, sugar, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla to the brown butter. Pour this luscious filling into the crust and bake the chess pie in the oven. No one will be able to resist Nana's Brown Butter Chess Pie!
