I spy a Chess Pie!

Here's the thing.  Every month I bake something for my husband to take to his office for everyone to enjoy.  He does the taste test to see if it is "worthy" (his word) of my baking, before he takes it to share.  However, every now and then he says, "This is much too good to share with anyone, I am keeping this at home for me to eat the whole thing!"  Stingy? You decide!  His favorite dessert is PIE...ALL KINDS...sure he has favorites.  This months office bake was Chess Pie.  It never made it to the office!

Thinking that he was taking this to the office, I cut them into Chess Bars.
