Easter is on its way, even though the snow is trying its best to halt the progress of spring here in VT. Easter is another favorite holiday of mine that includes baking and decorating and traditions that carry on through the years. Rabbits, chicks, violets, daffodils, tulips, chocolate bunnies, marshmallow eggs. Oh boy. I still have decorated goose eggs from my childhood that I treasure and a collection of vintage collectibles for the table to highlight the children's Easter baskets. I start collecting items to "assist" the Easter Bunny months ahead of time.
Easter food is lemon and meringue, hot cross buns, ham, asparagus and so many more delightful flavors including this Buttermilk Lemon Chess Pie.
Chess pie is a traditional southern dish, a very simple pie not a custard but is compared to a cheese-less cheesecake! This lemon version is made with buttermilk and is a simple and delightful end to a Easter brunch or dinner.
