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.
Maybe it's just a matter of taste but I found this pie much too sweet. After the first couple of bites I just couldn't eat any more. I followed the directions exactly except for omitting the walnuts.
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.
Delicious! I used more raisins, because there was only alittle bit left in the bag, and brown sugar instead of white (my preference). Will make again.
Easy to follow. Got rave reviews from my Finnish inlaws. I used only one cup of raisins and half cup of walnuts (all I had), and boiled water to just pour over the bowl of raisins, rather than actively boiling the raisins. Worked great. Served with vanilla sauce, but next time I might serve with vanilla ice cream or caramel sauce.
Magnifficent,spectacular,i have found nervana! This recipe is better than any pecan, or chess i have ever had. All other pies will never be the same. It is very addictive, and may be dangerous if there isn`t enough to go around.
Very very rich pie. I liked it but was the only one for our Christmas dinner.
