Pie was extremely easy to make and was demolished by my bofriend and his 14 year old within an hour



I chose this pie because I was trying to duplicate the one from Furr's. Nope- nothing like it. I wanted a butter chess pie, so this looked like it might work. It's not bad, just not what I was looking for. Too sticky sweet for me. But if that's what YOU are looking for, go for it!



I was looking for a easy Chess Pie recipe and found this one, gave it a try and my husband loves it.
