The Salt Lake Tribune is featuring several local cook’s pies and My Grandmother’s Chess Pie Recipe was selected. This pie is a family tradition and no Thanksgiving would be complete without it.  You can check out the recipe for My Grandmother’s Chess Pie here and view several amazing pies on the Salt Lake Tribune here.

Such a rich and generous pie, as the Chess Pie, is the perfect illustration of my grandmother’s Southern hospitality and sweet spirit. She simply loved everyone around her and enjoyed hosting fabulous parties in her small Texas town.

I hope you’ll make your family’s pie recipe this year or I will loan you mine.  It might just become a Thanksgiving staple for you as well.

I would love to hear what your family’s traditional pie is for Thanksgiving?
