Chess Pie

Chess Pie: Chess Pie is a plain, but very sweet, southern dish, variously described as pecan with pecans, cheesecake with cheese, or plain custard. Of course, since it's unadorned, there are also many variations with different flavors added, such as fruits, nuts, corn and vinegar. The pie can be traced back to England and the name most likely derives from cheese (aka curd) pie, though many other stories abound.
