Lemon Chess Pie
When cousins Marilyn and Earl were here last week, the dessert I served up was a creamy but extra-lemony lemon chess pie. I've been making this one for a number of years now, operating somehow under the impression that I was using a recipe that supposedly was a favorite of President Bill Clinton. Last fall, I actually checked my handwritten recipe against the one printed in the Clinton Foundation cookbook...and they did not match! This one, though, has been voted the superior one at the Roediger House.
"Lemon Chess Pie," originally thought to be President Clinton's favorite version, but apparently it's not quite the same. My source is unknown but this link goes to the identical recipe.
