Citrus Chess Pie

We used a fluted round cutter to make our design on this pie, but a hexagonal, flower, or oval shape would work as well. Dusted with powdered sugar before serving, it might remind you of another sweet-and-tart old-fashioned favorite, lemon bars. For the decorating technique, see our step-by-step photos.

Cook's Notes

When blind-baking (prebaking) a piecrust, crumple parchment into a ball and smooth it back out before lining the crust with it.The "relaxed" paper will fit the crust better, and can be easily folded away from decorative edges.
