Hockaday Chess Pie I went to The Hockaday School when I was a kid, and recently saw Lisa Loeb (another former student), visit this private girls' school in Dallas on her Food Network show (with Dwiezel Zappa). She went to the kitchen and got them to show her how they make this great, simple, light but sweet, pie (my favorite.) I had gotten the recipe when I left the school back in the 70's, and I've kept it ever since. Please notice, unlike most chess pies, it has no lemon in it. I guess you could add other extracts, like almond, if you just had to!
