Chess pies are sweet and creamy. If you have not tried a chess pie, they are super easy to make and delicious.
Chess pie is a cousin to the Buttermilk Pieand the egg custard pie. It is smooth, creamy and a sweet treat. You can easily change this pie up by adding 2 TB of fresh lemon juice. It becomes a delicious Lemon Chess Pie. Try adding Cocoa Powder with the dry ingredients to create a Chocolate Chess Pie (do not add the lemon juice with the chocolate). See My Chocolate Chess Post.
If you feel like God has moved so far away from you, it is not God who has moved. Take time to spend talking to God even during this busy time of the year. He is close by and wants to hear from you. He can also handle all that you bring to him. So, get a piece of this delicious chess pie, a cup of coffee and a quiet place and give God what is in your heart.
James 4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.Print
