Awesome Chess Pie

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mariposa13

This is a really good recipe for chess pie. I found it somewhere on the internet and have been using it for a couple of years. It's great! I am not adding anything to this recipe in response to the 1 star review. This is the exact way I make this every time and it always comes out perfect. Flour/cornstarch would not be good in a chess pie.

Okay - let me say first that I have never heard of chess pie...with that said, this pie is YUMMY! I hope my family eats it all up when they get home, or I'll have to eat the whole thing myself, and that would be just a shame (to my thighs anyway)! ;-)
