More About This Recipe
  • The origins of chess pie and how it got its name are widely debated and uncertain, but one thing is for sure: chess pie is a timeless, popular dessert known for both its simplicity and versatility. Every chess pie is the sum of four basic ingredients: flour, butter, sugar and eggs. From there, you can customize it almost any way you want. Some recipes call for a bit of lemon juice, dashes of nutmeg and cinnamon, cornmeal vinegar or even cocoa powder, as is the case with this chocolate chess pie recipe. Chess pie ingredients are simply whisked in one bowl together, poured into a pie crust and baked to perfection. Prep time is under 15 minutes, which leaves you plenty of time to dress up your crust or get some other chores done around the house while your delicious pastry bakes. Think this recipe is easy?
