Your Move: Chess Pies

This class is being offered virtually. 

You won’t learn the Queen’s Gambit in this hands-on class, but we will teach you our best strategies for something equally as challenging—pie! We’ll set you up for success in creating two favorite Bakehouse pies—Chocolate Chess and Lemon Chess—including their flaky, all-butter crusts.

Chess pies are a Southern tradition. Chocolate Chess pie features a creamy baked chocolate custard, while Lemon Chess is made with lots of fresh lemon juice, fresh lemon zest, and a splash of buttermilk. Both are sure to be winning additions to your baking repertoire!

You'll leave the BAKE! class with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and the two chess pies you made in class.

My Weigh Kitchen Scale


A scale is the perfect way to take the guesswork out of your measuring, but not all scales are created equal. The My Weigh KD-8000 is one of our favorites, and it's the same version of the scale our instructors use during BAKE! Classes. We like it because it weighs accurately down to 1 gram/0.05 oz, which means even small measurements will be precise. It also has a Baker's Math function that lets you calculate percentages of other ingredients in a recipe based on the total weight of your flour—a great way to figure out your dough's hydration, or to scale a recipe up or down!

The scale is battery-powered (but comes with an AC adapter if you'd rather have it plugged in) and has a weight capacity of up to 8000 grams/17.62 lb. It features a backlit LCD readout with a protective cover, and a removable platform for easy cleaning. Shipping is included in the price.
