Delicious Chess Pie Recipe

chess pie recipe on Celebrations At Home

Today’s recipe will do nothing for your New Year’s resolution if you’re goal is to lose weight.  It is, however, an insanely delicious recipe that’s been passed down through the generations.  This classic Chess Pie recipe – or as we like to call it, “sugar-butter pie” – is the recipe to go for when you want to serve guests but maybe have too many picky palettes to please {someone doesn’t like nuts, someone doesn’t like chocolate, etc.}.  I’ve not met anyone yet who doesn’t love this chess pie.

Make it a day ahead if you have the time because it will taste even better the next day, and serve it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.  It’s simple to make, and you probably have the ingredients on hand!
