LEMON CHESS PIE WITH SOUR CHERRIES

Jewel Hall Recipe

By Jewel Hall 0124

This is a recipe from The Foster's Market Cookbook, their specialty is cherries. I really like Chess Pie and though I haven't tried this recipe the picture is awesome. I have been looking for Sour Cherry Recipes. There is a tree between me and my next door neighbor. It's beautiful when it blooms then the red cherries are lovely when pulling into my drive. I froze some of the cherries and am wanting to use them. I've never cooked much with Sour Cherries but did make cobblers in the spring this year. I believe this recipe would be very tasty and attractive to look at.

    You are quiet welcome Stephanie. I made it today and it turned out well. The only thing different I cooked it about 10 minutes longer. Could be my oven temp a little off. My stove is not old but my son questioned if the temperature might be a little off. The looks and taste was right on target.....Jewel

    Jewel! This sounds amazing! Think I could use choke cherries for it? Thank you so much!

    Ria, I don't know what choke cherries are but if they are eatable it should be okay to use them. They come to the top during the cooking process and it looks quiet attractive....Jewel
