I obtained this recipe 40-years ago from the cook at the Highway Cafe in Scappoose, Oregon. I have never found its equal. Whenever I serve it, I am always asked for the recipe.

Great Pie. I love chess pies so I thought I would try this one. I'm not a big fan of raisins so I just put in the nuts. I was worried it might not taste that great but it was wonderful. Everyone loved it. My mom even asked how to make it. This is not as sweet as a chess pie and I like it that way. My mom and I cut the sugar when making one anyway.

Very pleased. I used Chopped Pecans in place of the Walnuts, and Splenda Baking Sugar in place of regular sugar, turned out great.

This pie is divine! If you like rich desserts, this is one to try. I omitted the walnuts as my boyfriend doesn't like them (I will make one with nuts for this Christmas though lol) and it was still great.
