"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!!!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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 made two of these pies, one as directed and one with Splenda and an extra jumbo egg. A sugar-free version would need more tweaking however as my attempt resulted in a dry pie. However a dollop of cool whip made it enjoyable. The pie made per directions sold for $35 at the church bake sale. The purchaser informed me the pie was moist, unusual and enjoyed.
It just has too much going on for my taste without anything really shining, I will not make it again.
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.
