This is another recipe I found in Mom's Women's Club cookbook. It is a very delicious, and very rich, basic chess pie. I can see tweaking the recipe to evolve into all kinds of variations, but it is wonderful just as it is. (Please note that the pie bakes at 425 degrees for only 5 minutes, then the heat is reduced to 350 degrees.)
