Chess Pie
I was informed earlier this week that I was in charge of dessert for Thanksgiving. I was actually looking for something else when I happened across this recipe. As a child growing up in north central Kentucky my grandmother, a country girl from a small Kentucky town, would make chess pie occasionally around the holidays. She's been gone many years now and I haven't had a chess pie in a long time. Upon seeing this recipe, I decided we were having chess pie along with the usual pumpkin and pecan pies. I followed the recipe to the letter and was rewarded with a near perfect pie. It wasn't quite as good as my grandmother's but it was pretty close. It was the first dessert gone out of at least five others. My mother and oldest sister (both great cooks) pronounced it wonderful. I have been told to bring two next time. By the way, this was the first pie I have ever baked in my fifty plus years. I had one issue however. The cook time was a little longer than called for. I'll be using this recipe again come Christmas.
