Lemon Chess Pie

I love to bake for my
Friends and Family.
I believe anything made from
your own time given, from
the heartfelt love of ones self,
is a gift from the heart.
Of course I try to make sure
that whatever I bake up is
something the one receiving
will love. When it comes to
my Dad I know anything Lemon is
going to be a hit. Now make that in
a "pie" form and you score bonus points.
(Having 6 other siblings, that helps...hee, hee)
This is a passed down Family recipe,
 I really have no idea where
 it originated from. Only that my Mom
has listed it in every family cook book
we have. It is a "keeper"! 
Dad's Favorite Lemon Chess Pie

Despite loving all things south, I have yet to try Chess Pie! But looking this recipe over, I plan to remedy that very soon :)
