Don’t let the name fool you, there’s nothing illegal about this pie. It’s really just a modern take on the more traditional Chess Pie. It’s been on my must try list ever since it was featured in the L.A. Times top ten recipes of 2010. However, two super rich pies in a household of two, are two too many. I had to wait for a large get together where they would be polished off. These beauties will be going to a St. Patrick’s Day pot luck at my cousin’s place. She always manages to attract a crowd of hungry people for just about any holiday.

It can be easily adapted for the Global Sun Oven® by using two small baking trays in place of the 9-x-13-inch called for and extending the cooking time as needed. I made mine on a partly cloudy day. The Global Sun Oven’s temperature hovered around 325ºF to 340ºF. The cookie, which is baked first, then used to make the crust, took about 40 minutes. The pies were ready in just under an hour.
Baking trays stacked in the cooking chamber.
