In The Kitchen With: Cheryl Day’s Chocolate Chess Pie – Design*Sponge

Cheryl Day’s Back in the Day Bakery is one of my favorite “one day I’m going to drive to that bakery” dream destinations. Cheryl is one of the first people I thought about when I saw Black History Month coming around the bend. She has shared her blackened shrimp tacos and baked peach hand pies before. This week, she shares her Chocolate Chess Pie. Chess pie is the quintessential Southern pie (Hugh Acheson shared his recipe with us), often seated alongside a pecan pie and a sweet potato pie at holidays. If you’ve never tried it, it is an incredibly sweet pie that’s difficult to describe — a filling made with butter, sugar, eggs and some cornmeal, and sometimes you’ll find it with lemon, sometimes with chocolate. Sometimes it’s just chess pie. I opted for a straight-sided pie in this version, and I bet my filling is a bit firmer than Cheryl’s, but she does hers a bit fancier. You’ll just have to drive to Back in the Day Bakery to see how it’s done! — Kristina
