Chess Pie

Try This Easy Sweet Pie ( Chess Pie ). It will become the hit for the Holidays. I love this pie with a very good sweet tooth. It's tasty and will melt in your mouth.


When I was a child going to school,I think I was in the..... 5th grade. the lunch room would serve this chess pie...and ya'll... I could not get enough.

I was friends with a lunch room lady, she gave me the recipe for this chess pie. The recipe had instructions for how made many pies you could make like 1 pie, 6 pies, or 12 and so on.

I went home and made 1 pie and wow...! it turn out wonderful. My cousin Marie could not believe I baked that chess pie like the lunch room at school.

Now this is a very old southern recipe. It's a very sweet, rich pie which I cannot described as anything but marvelous!!
