    Your version looks very tasty! Never used corn starch in it before, but I bet it makes it a little thicker and smoother than corn meal.

    Cabincrazyone, chess is probably derived from "cheese" since this kind of pie is like a cheese-less cheesecake.

    Sounds very good!
    Pardon my ignorance. Why the word "chess"?
    The only chess I can think of in cooking is the vanilla wafers called chessmen.
