    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    I love this recipe. Since it's "pie day" I was looking for a way to teach my kids a little something in addition to baking a treat for them. I described the murky/unknown history of chess pies and the ingredients historical availability. The big surprise though was how wonderful the pie tasted when it was done. Made from easily-at-hand ingredients, I see making it many more times. I'm not a big fan of citrus rind or marmalade. The orange flavor here was not overpowering or bitter. The pie was fantastic served just slightly warm with a dollop of whipped topping. Easy, sort of fast, plain ingredients, and just plain wonderful. This recipe is a keeper.
