Little is definitively known about chess pie’s origins, but its similarities to English lemon curd pie have inspired popular theories that the dish descends from early English settlers in the Virginia colony. A recipe similar to chess pie appears in Martha Washington’s Booke of Cookery, from the mid-18th century.
Chess pie is most commonly associated as a dessert of the American South. This is what would happen if a dark chocolate brownie and a perfect flaky pie had a baby….Perfection!
