How about Chess Pie?
I learned about this about a decade ago when I helped some Civil War buffs plan a fund-raising dinner. I gave them a reproduction of an 1860 cookbook. Chess Pie was something they especially wanted to serve.
The dish is very tasty and has an interesting story. Chess Pie is a sort of economy custard pie. It has only a bottom crust and is rather heavy. However, it goes quite well with a cup of coffee or tea after dinner. It's similar to an Italian Grain Pie.
The name probably evolved when soldiers in the Civil War were welcomed at farms in both the North and South. The farm couldn't provide much but they could provide pie and coffee.
When the soldiers asked what kind of pie it was, they usually got the answer, 'It's just pie'.
Given the differences in pronunciation at the time, ' just pie' could be heard as 'jess pie'. It isn't a great stretch to see 'Jess pie' becoming 'Chess Pie'.
