Lemon Chess Pie with Berry Sauce
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 35 min. + chilling

I have this pie several times, but I put a cup of finely chopped pecans in my crust. Some of my family did not care for the mixed berries. I make a sauce with just strawberries. That goes over big time.
I made this with an oil pie crust, and with lime zest & juice instead of lemon, and it was delicious! My Thanksgiving guests loved it. I also halved the amount of sugar in the filling with no problem.
My husband is the baker in our house and he knows how much I love lemon and chess pies. He tried this one out on our family for Sunday dinner and it was an instant hit. I love, love it! I requested it for Thanksgiving.
I made this pie for my mother-in-law's birthday, and it turned out great! Everybody had seconds and the entire pie was eaten in one sitting!! My mother-in-law even said she wanted me to make this pie for her every year! This is quite a success considering she normally doesn't eat very many sweets. I guess I will have to file this recipe for future use!!
