No Pecan Pie

  • 1 C mashed pinto beans
  • 2 C sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 lb butter
  • 2 tbs molasses
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Cream sugar and butter. Add well beaten eggs, molasses, and salt. Beat in well-mashed beans (that have been cooked.) Pour into an unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 F until firm. I always sprinkle a small package of pecan halves on top. You can hardly tell the difference.

When I was growing up my mom used to make Pecan pie. If she didn’t have Pecans she used Walnuts. And when she didn’t have any nuts it was called (and very fondly) Surp pie.
One day will have to try this to see what people around me thinks of it. Won’t tell them what is in it.
Thank you for the recipe and for it triggering the memory.

I have fixed this a few times for friends and they don’t know its not pecan pie until I told them. Truly amazing pie.

I sell this pie (without molasses) at Farmers Market and people LOVE it!

I have a recipe for “Mock Apple Pie” made with saltines instead of apples… No one can tell the difference (other than the “apples” lack a crisp texture). I’ll have to look it up and make it soon.

Used to make the same with Ritz crackers. I think the recipe was (is?) still on some packages.

Hey let’s get some fiber in our pie!!!!! Have heard about bean pies but never tried one, guess I will have to. Plus what a good treat in a shtf situations and you have beans but nothing else to make a pie.

Some more fiber for you and good for your cholesterol as well…lol

Sounds delightful. Can cocao powder be added to it and the butter replaced with margarine? Because I have enjoyed chocolate pecan pie a few times, don’t eat butter anymore and I prefer chocolate over the basic flavor.

I don’t know why not, other than playing with the amount to get the glavor where you want it.
