This pie was "slap yo' mama good!!" It might have been my oven, but I thought that it would NEVER set up, but when it did, we could hardly wait for it to cool off enough to eat. I never at a chess pie warm. I like it better warm than cold now!

This was super easy to make and very tasty. Super sweet for my taste but my 6 year old DS gobbled it right up! Thanks for a great recipe Nimz.
