Pumpkin Chess Pie
Chess Pies: These pies have been identified with Southern cookery.
Egerton stated that the Chess pie did not show up in American cookbooks until the twentieth century. There are several stories as to how the name originated. One is it has to do with a pie safe or pie chest; it may have been called a chest pie at first. And the other story is the cook identified the pie as “jes pie” which later was called chess pie. There are many similar recipes with different flavors: brown sugar, chocolate, lemon. Some consider the chess pie and the pecan pie to be similar except for the nuts.
So here is another way to get a pumpkin flavor to your "Jes Pie"!
