"This recipe combines the best of three Southern pies--coconut, pecan and chess. This is a pie that carries well and sells well at bake sales!!!"

1 1/2 tablespoons
1 1/2 cups
1 (9 inch)
unbaked pie crust
The pie was easy to make. It was good, but not great. When I ask my DH said it was ok. If I make it again, probably use only half of the coconut, and/or pecans.
I bake this pie in twos and keep one in the freezer for a quick dessert. I LOVE THIS PIE. My husband who hates chess pies, loves it also. Great recipe!
I only used 1 cup sugar and think it could go down to a 1/2 cup no problems. It was yummy.
Great taste and easy. I left out the coconut and added extra pecans and it turned out just as I'd hoped - like a slightly firmer and less sweet version of a pecan pie. I did need to bake this uncovered longer after I removed the foil and it was still runny in the middle even after cooling. Don't know if it had anything to do with my modifications. But it was still really good!
Absolutely wonderful!!! Highly recommend this variation of a chess pie.
This is the best pie I've ever had. Pecan pie has always been my favorite but this puts a nice spin on it. My kids ate it up too.
I had an extra pie crust and was browsing AllRecipes to find a new pie to try. This recipe caught my eye because these are my three favorite pies! I figured it would be easy to taste the pecan and coconut, but I doubted whether the actual flavor of chess would come through. Boy, was I wrong! This pie actually tastes like all three pies in one. It is very sweet and rich and reminds me of all the pies I had growing up. Love it! I made it as-is except for the substitution of butter instead of margarine. Thanks for a great recipe!
