I cut about 1/4 c. sugar from this recipe, and it was great. I would definitely cook it toward the higher end of the baking time since mine didn't entirely firm up even after refrigerating overnight.

What is a chess pie anyway? Well, after making this, I describe it as a lemon bar. It's the same texture and flavor as a lemon bar, yet doesn't have that unappealing eggy flavor. If you're looking for something tart, look elsewhere. This was tastey and low cal.
