Yes, it's sweet. Chess pie is supposed to be sweet. ;) I made it exactly as the recipe was written & it turned out great! I didn't have any problems with butter oozing in the middle at all. I'm wondering if those who did, may have used margarine instead of real butter? Or maybe made a deep dish pie, which would have made the custard thicker?
I did half the recipe, which was just enough to make one reg. 9 in. pie (not deep dish). And, of course... used my pie shell ring to keep the edges from burning. If you like chess pie, this is a keeper.
