To close out 2015 and make good use of my vacation time, I decided to bake my friends & neighbors pies as Christmas gifts and a way to share some cheer.
Chess pie sometimes called buttermilk pie was on the list. Why? because sugar makes every one happy and any pie with 2 cups sugar is sure to make you happy!
This was my first attempt at it and I really thought I had failed. The color wasn’t perfect and my custard did not raise as high as I would have liked.
But my neighbor was so complimentary. In fact he told us he had been looking for this pie for years and no one new what it was called or where to find it. He had tried all the freezer sections looking for it.
Despite my own disappointment with my 1st attempt, I had the courage to share it anyway and the result was better than expected. 🙂

My mother’s custard always rose and then fell as it cooled. I think yours looks fine. Yum.
