Recipes vary, but all the variations call for the preparation of a single crust and a filling composed of eggs, butter, granulated sugar, and vanilla. What sets chess pie apart from many other custard pies is the addition of cornmeal. Some recipes also call for corn syrup, which tends to create a thicker consistency.

In addition to standard chess pie, other flavor variations include lemon, coconut and chocolate chess pie.
