Chocolate chess.

There is a beauty to the simplicity of chess pie.  An aberrational twist on the name "just pie," chess pie is simple and plain yet such a delicious dessert.  Just sugar, eggs, butter, milk and a splash of vinegar and you're on your way to a little good eating.

Alley Oops in Little Rock does two versions -- and they always sell out.  The traditional is almost always offered -- but it's Gary Duke's chocolate chess
pie that gets the nod for excellence.  Brownie-crisp on top and custard-like underneath, it's a real winner.

There's a recipe for chocolate chess pie in the book -- another reason to take home a copy.
