"This is just an old-fashioned chess pie. Best of all, you can't taste the buttermilk, and it's "so rich" :). Time for cooling pie is not included. Posted to " ZAZZ " on August 6th.,2012"

Pie was good with some Cool Whip on top. Tasted different than I thought it was going to, but it was still good.

We love pie and when I saw this I had to try it since I had never had a chess pie. It is sweet and delicious and rich in flavor. We loved it with whipped cream on top!

I made this the day I saw it on the site, I made as written but instead of margarine I used butter, the person whom I made it for said it was the best they have had. I think this may be the recipe I will stick with now, thank you!
