“This is a rich, fluffy egg custard type pie. My Grandfather loved this pie and the recipe has been handed down through the years. You can cut the sugar in half if so desired. This pie calls for lemon extract, but doesn't taste like lemon.”

I have never had chess pie. My friends were talking about how good it is and easy to make so I looked it up and made this one. Really easy. I had to cook it a lot longer but there wasnt any left by the time everyone had all they wanted.

I gave this recipe to my sister, and she made it at home. She said it was really good. When she came to visit, I got her to make it for us, and it was really good. She used brown sugar instead of white, and evaporated milk.
