Wednesday most of my family descended for dinner and ham, and Thursday our friends descended for (leftover ham and) turkey. Both were filled with yummy food and lots of fun!

CC suggested it after finding the recipe on the Food Network website. He was all like, "It's a Gale Gand recipe!" Now if you don't know who she is, Gale Gand used to have her own show on the Food Network, but besides that, she's this incredibly amazing pastry/dessert chef. ANYTHING I've ever seen her make is amazing and looks incredible.
CC begged. Pleaded. Begged some more. I caved and we bought the ingredients.
I ended up making it Thursday morning during the Macy's parade (holla) and then had to WAIT to try it until after dinner that night.
Things I'm thankful for? This totally tops the list. This pie was incredibly easy to whip up and throw in the oven. I was nervous because I thought the top was burning, but apparently that's what chess pies do to get all crispy on top. SOOOOO delicious.
Go make this now and be thankful I told you about it.
