What Is A Lemon Chess Pie?
Chess Pie is a classic Southern pie recipe, that actually originated in England. Without getting into too much history, it’s a sweet pie recipe that is very easy to make with simple ingredients. Today I’m making a lemon version of the classic, and I might say that I prefer the tart lemon filling over the original! The filling almost tastes like lemon curd, so if you like lemon curd, you will LOVE this recipe!
