What is so romantic about Chocolate? Who made it into such a big focus and gift for Valentine’s Day? Well no matter what time I year, I love anything chocolate.
I have never heard of Chess Pie until I moved to Va. In fact I have only had chess pie once since living in Va. A true southern dish I believe.
I was making a nice weeknight dinner a few weeks ago and was looking for a quick dessert that I had most of the ingredients on hand. Chocolate Chess pie fit the bill, especially since ” Extra easy” was in the title of the recipe.
I am sure you can make your own pie crust but I had one on hand and that is usually the route I usually take.
So now the Midwest transplant was going to take on a southern Tradition.
First I only had a deep dish pie crust in the freezer and the recipe only called for a pie crust. I was a little nervous when I poured the filling. Seems pretty empty.
However it did puff up. I took out the pie per the directions, wish I know what I was looking for as far as if the pie needed to be set first?
