Chess Pie (s) that I love

I am a fan of chess pie, ok I LOVE chess pie. I wanted to share a few recipes that I love with yall.

Gram Pat passed away about 7 years ago, but her recipe still lives on every time I make this recipe.

Antie Louisa is a dear sweet cajun that looked after me while I wandered the swamp lands trying to figure out what I wanted to do in life.

The others I have gathered through the years of collecting recipes from people.

I make the cajunking's chocolate chess pie every year for turkey day, and it is the first dessert to disappear.
