I made this pie exactly as is (except I left it in the oven until the oven cooled, thus setting the center a bit more), and it was very good. It was a raving success at my Thanksgiving dinner, and it disappeared before any of the other desserts. It is a quintessential chess pie, with a dark, cracked top and a soft center. To me, it was a bit sweet (which is the point), so I just made another one, substituting whipping cream for the evaporated milk and adding flaked coconut...which won't make it any less sweet, but it sounds good anyway. I'll let everybody know how it compares.
