Old-Fashioned Butter Chess Pie and Navigating West Texas Real Estate with Lainie Eilenberger

Updated: Jan 21

Howdy, folks! Lainie Eilenberger here, your trusted West Texas realtor, and today, I'm serving up a double delight - a taste of the classic West Texan cuisine along with a heaping helping of real estate wisdom. We're going to whip up my version of Furr's Cafeteria's old-fashioned butter chess pie, a Lubbock & West Texas favorite that's as delectably irresistible as a perfect home. Ready to get started? Let's saddle up!


Let's rustle up the ingredients:


  • 1 cup of sugar, sweet as the West Texas breeze

  • 1/2 cup of butter, to add a comforting, homely touch

  • 3 large eggs, the foundation of our recipe just as trust and transparency are in real estate

  • 1 tablespoon of cornmeal, to add a delightful crunch

  • 1 tablespoon of vinegar, for a unique tangy twist

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, to infuse warmth and richness into our pie

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie shell, the canvas to our beautiful creation

And now, for the pie-making magic:


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F - preparation is key in both baking and home-buying.

  2. Blend the butter and sugar together until smooth. In real estate, a successful transaction requires the same seamless blending of buyer's needs, market conditions, and paperwork.

  3. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Just as we take care to add each egg, in real estate, every step, from staging to closing, is handled with precision.

  4. Stir in the cornmeal, vinegar, and vanilla. Each ingredient is essential, just like each element of a successful real estate deal.

  5. Pour your mixture into the pie shell and bake for 45 minutes or until the pie is set in the center.

While our pie is transforming into a culinary masterpiece, let's talk a bit about the magic I work in the real estate field.
