Update from the Pie-Making Front




Made the chess pie in a DEEP dish, and it took MUCH longer to bake than I thought it would--well over an hour. And even though I used a deep dish, some of it spilled over to the bottom of the oven, where it burned and smoked up the entire house. So . . . just keep that in mind.

The chess pie came out beautifully, except the crust shrank beneath the pie. :-/

And the sweet potato pies (the doubled recipe made three pies!) are still in the oven. :-)

Now maybe you understand why I don't cook very often. :-)

Bon appetit!

Your chess pie looks exactly like my chess squares that I plan on making later on tonight...super yummy!!! You may have to try it out instead of the pie next year...don't really have to worry so much about the crust, and they're really easy to make. ;o)

Here's a link to the recipe I posted a few weeks ago:

Hope your sweet potato pies turn out well...they look delish! :o)
