"I'm a guy that does almost no cooking, but I can bake this. Turns out good every time. Not for someone on a diet, or with sugar problems. A big hit, with the young and old alike!"

Something is wrong with this recipe besides not indicating the temperature to cook it at. I carefully measured all ingredients but the "batter" produced only fills about 1/3 of the pie shell?? ...

This recipe is excellent. The pie is delicious and simple to make.

I know this as a sugar pie. Grandma made these when I was little. The directions are pretty close to hers, only she covered the edges of the pie with a crust cover or foil to keep them from burn...

amazing recipie... the lady who complained must have done something wrong. this one's going in my recipe box

This isn't a chess pie, ive never seen one come out like this, although its very tasty. It taste more like a pecan pie without the pecans.

YUM!!! This pie is very addicting!! Definitely a keeper!!!
