This is a very old recipe. When my mother in law was just a little girl, she knew that making clothes had a pattern, but at that time she didn't know that with cooking it was a recipe. So she asked Pearl Weddle for her pattern for her chess cakes. It has been called a pattern ever since.

Note: We cut small rounds from a refrigerated pie crust to make our mini shells. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
