Lemon Chess Pie

Happy New Year!  Have you made your resolution(s) yet?  During a dinner conversation a few nights ago, Todd commented “we have all been humbled.”  How honest and true – whether it is personally or professionally or a little bit of both, we have all been humbled in life – so the question is, how do you handle the not-Facebook or Instagram-worthy posts?  How do you respond?  What do you resolve to do differently?  In the new year, I hope to be more action and less talk to make myself, my family, my friends, my community, my country, and my world a little bit better.

Thank you, Mimi, for another great recipe.  If I hear Andrew tell me one more time just how good this pie is… and thus a blog worthy recipe is shared.

Happy birthday, Jen!!


  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3 cup minus 3 tablespoons milk, warm
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 pie shell, unbaked
Cream 6 tablespoons of butter, ¼ tsp salt, 2 cups sugar, 1 tablespoon flour until smooth.  Add 4 eggs, one at a time. Beat well after each. Add 2/3 cups minus 3 tablespoons warm milk and 4 tablespoons lemon juice. Mix well.
