Amish Bob And Andy Pie

The story behind this pie is that an Amish farmer came in from working in the fields, took one bite of this delicious pie and said "this pie is as good as Bob and Andy" which were his two prize gelding work horses. It reminds me of a rich, spicy chess pie.

Based on a 2,000 calorie diet


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat all ingredients together very well and pour into a 9 inch unbaked pie shell.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes. Pie will quiver. This is ok! The top will be puffed up when you remove the pie from the oven and will fall down after it has cooled. This is ok, too! Best served at room temperature.

I loved this pie so much. It's light, custardy and spicy. Absolutely fantastic! Very very easy to make.


This is not CHESS PIE. Or maybe it is.. Chess custard pie. This is the worst example of a chess pie i've ever seen. It's just terrible. It takes two pie crust to use all of the ingredients, and those need to be DEEP DISH.

My 93 year old mother-in-law grew up in rural Indiana. She lately started to talk about this pie, which I had never heard of. I used this recipe and she just loved it. Apparently it was very much like what she remembered eating 75+years ago. Thank you so much for posting this old recipe. It made her so happy!
