I created this chess pie ESPECIALLY FOR MY DAUGHTER BRIANA. It is derived from my BH&G Chocolate Chess Pie, with a few changes.

My daughter does not like dark chocolate, but loves Pecan Pie, this recipe taste just like Pecan pie, but without the Karo syrup.

I knew she would love it if I left out the chocolate, so I had to add something else, I used ORGANIC UNSWEETENED SHREDDED COCONUT, & THAT IS WHAT TOOK IT OVER THE TOP.

Add a little cool whip, & extra nuts on top if you like, & you definately have a winning recipe. This recipe makes 2 pies, and when you taste it, you will know why.
