Christmas Chess Pie
Christmas Holly Decoration

Many people have never tried or even heard of Chess Pie. This is a different dessert that will delight friends and family at Christmas

1 Pie Crust
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup dates (cut up)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla

Prepare a pie crust as follows:
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
1 cup flour
2 or 3 tablespoons water

Mix shortening into the flour with a fork until mixture is made up of crumbly pebble sized lumps. Add water and toss with a fork until batter is moist. Now, using your hands, form the dough into a ball.

Dust a large flat (clean and dry) surface with flour. Place ball of dough on surface; then dust the dough ball. Carefully press ball flat with rolling pin. Dust ball again and flip, repeating the process until dough is eight to nine inches in diameter. Flip dough over rolling pin and lay it into pie tin. Trim edges. Set aside while making filling.

Beat the egg yolks, flour, sugar and salt with a mixer until it is lemon coloured and light. Now add whipping cream, the dates, the walnuts and vanilla. Stir, do not beat. When mixture is consistent pour it into the pie shell and move to 350 degree oven. Bake about one hour.

Pie will be done when crust is golden brown.
