I just realized that Easter is coming right up at the end of the month. I could be totally cliche and say that time is flying by. I won't. But it is.
Also in March we can celebrate Pi Day. March 14th or 3/14 is quickly approaching too.
I don't do pie too often. Give me a cookie or cake any day. Pie I can decline and not regret the decision for the rest of the night.
Mr. J however loves pie. Mainly apple. He is also a fan of custards. I am much more fond of custards than apple. Plus I am always up for a new recipe. I was eyeing Chess pies for a while. Hearing and seeing that they were wonderful, but never trying them myself. Well due to Easter and to honor Pi Day I decided it was time to make some pie.
I went with a classic buttermilk version; however, there is also a chocolate version or you can make the classic with regular milk. There are staunch supports of each on the web.
As for pies I quite enjoyed this one. Be sure to have your sweet tooth ready because this pie is definitely sweet. Buttery and gooey too.
I put this pie together in about 10 minutes. Just in the nick of time before Olivia decide she wasn't going to have her nap for the day.
I enjoyed it warm but Mr. J preferred the chilled version the next day. Either way it was a good choice for my occasional pie making days.
