Lemon Chess Pie
This Southern classic's name is a bit of a mystery, but the story goes that when asked what kind of pie the inventor made, she said 'jes' pie' and culinary history was made. This version has the requisite flaky pastry crust and sweet lemon custard filling but it's healthier with canola oil and a touch less sugar than the sticky-sweet traditional version, so the lemon really shines through.
