This recipe for chess squares works very well, and is easy. I cut it in half, and it fit a 9" round pan perfectly. They are really, really sweet and very rich.The recipe makes a lot of the cream cheese layer, you could easily cut it in half if you want less sugar.Overall, if you like chess squares, this recipe is great. If you think it's too much sugar, you're obviously not from the South.-15 Dec 2006

Enjoyed by all, but I only used one package of cream cheese and 2 cups of confectioner's sugar for the topping and reduced the cooking time to 30 minutes. Turned out perfect.-01 Nov 2005
