“We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.” David Mamet
My grandmother Taylor (we called her ‘Two-Nanny’) was the ultimate cook. Perhaps I’m a little prejudiced, but I believed she could cook, bake, fry, broil, etc. almost anything and the results would top the best dishes Julia Child ever turned out! I spent a few weeks almost every summer when I was a kid with my grandparents and I could depend on ‘Two-Nanny’ to turn out a delicious fresh baked pie about every other day during my visit. Her “chess” pies were her favorites …. buttermilk chess, pumpkin chess, lemon chess, etc., etc. …. that’s why this Caramel Chess Pie recipe is really special to me. It brings back a lot of great memories for me and I hope you will enjoy the finished product as much as I do!
