For many good cooks, chess pie, as wonderful as it is, is only the beginning. Pecan pie is basically a good chess pie chock full of pecans. Lemon Chess is a dream of a dessert. I remember with awe my first bite. And just wait till you taste Chocolate Chess! SAM

2 eggs
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
12 tablespoons butter, softened (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 (9-inch) unbaked pastry shell

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. With an electric mixer on high speed, beat the eggs until foamy, about 3 minutes. Lower the speed to medium, and beat in the flour, sugar, and brown sugar, until well blended. Beat in the butter. Stir in the walnuts and chocolate morsels by hand. Pour the batter into the pastry shell and bake for 55 minutes to 1 hour or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
Makes 8 servings.
