#ad Southern Chess Pie {recipe} & a giveaway

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PAM Cooking Spray. #PAMSmartTips

Thanksgiving is next week! Eek! :) I love when my family gets together but nothing stresses me out more than cooking for such a large group. It’s a little scary! haha! Will everyone like what I cook or will it be a big flop? So one of my biggest holiday cooking tips is to make a recipe you know for sure will turn out! Do you remember my famous lasagna recipe story? ;)

Well, today I am excited to share one of my family’s favorite recipes that I know will turn out perfectly yummy every single time. My mom would make Southern Chess Pie (or Jeff Davis Pie) for us all the time growing up. So keep reading to get this yummy recipe, hear one more holiday tip AND I have a fun giveaway for you, too! Yay!

OK….before we get to the recipe let me share my other holiday cooking tip that will help keep you out of the kitchen scrubbing dishes & spending more time with your family ~ PAM Cooking Spray! PAM Cooking Spray is awesome at preventing your food from sticking to your pans. That means less time soaking & scrubbing those dishes. Yay! Annnnd now both of these cooking sprays leave up to 99% less residue build-up than margarine & other brands of cooking spray. Plus they are zero (yes, I said zero!) calories! Does that mean I can have two slices of pie? ha! ;)

When I called my mom to get this recipe she gave me a little history about the origin of this yummy pie. Originally the recipe came from England & was know as the Chess Pie. It became very popular in the South during the Civil War, & it became known as Jeff Davis Pie. Some add pecans to the recipe but I’ve never had it that way. It is very rich, and it can be served with whipped cream, a lemon wedge or all by itself.

  30. I must say that your pie looks really, really tasty! I bookmarked this post just to keep the recipe, and then realized that there was a giveaway attached! Ha.
    My favorite pie is my Great Aunt Betty's peppermint stick ice cream pie. The crust is a cornflake/butter/walnut/coconut concoction, the filling is peppermint stick ice cream, and the topping is similar to the crust. Soooo good!
