IT’S NATIONAL PIE DAY!


In honor of today, I am letting you know that my all time favorite pie is chocolate chess pie.  

In fact, I almost despise all other pies.  I’m just now starting to kind of like pecan pie.  I know it’s weird. 

I was a Sophomore in High School when I ate my first whole pie slice.  There was a restaurant on our local town square that served sandwiches, soups, salads and of course pies.  Not sure how I was coerced to try it but I was amazed at how it tasted like a brownie.  Now I like my slices very plain but if you are a fan of cool whip throw some on the top.  

ENJOY!

1 1/2 cup sugar
5 Tbsp cocoa powder

    This pie is great heated with vanilla ice cream on the side.
