Would like a recipe for bean pie.

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

I had a very delicious pie which I got at the bakery during the holidays. I was hesitant to buy it because I couldn't believe "bean pie" would taste very good, but was I pleasantly surprised. It tasted like a very sweet custard and if you didn't know you never would have guessed the main ingredient. This is probably a very ancient dessert I am only now discovering, but with all the beans I've stored, I'd love to direct some to the dessert category. Thanks in advance and God bless. Mary

I can't vouch for this recipe, not having tried it, yet, but it sounds good.

Pinto Bean Pie

1/2 cup granulated sugar 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup butter or margarine 1 heaping cup mashed pinto beans 2 eggs, beaten Unbaked pie shell

Blend sugars, eggs and butter until creamy. Add pinto beans and blend well. Pour into 9" unbaked pie shell.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 min., then at 350 Degrees for 25 min. or until inserted knife comes out clean.

This tastes like pecan pie...Can be served with whipped cream, a whipped topping, or ice cream.
