1 Cup cooked CASSEROLE Premium Quality Pinto Beans
4 Ounces Butter
2 Cups Granulated Sugar or Splenda
1 Tbsp Vanilla
2 Tbsp Molasses or Dark Corn Syrup
½ tsp Salt
4 Eggs, Beaten
½ Cup Chopped Pecans (optional)
1 Unbaked Pie Shell
Mash pinto beans using a fork or pastry blender. Ok if you leave some chunks.
In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar together, add the vanilla, molasses or dark corn syrup, salt and beaten eggs and mix well. Combine this mixture with the mashed pinto beans and again mix well. Now, spread the filling mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Sprinkle chopped pecans on top if desired.
Bake the pie in a 350-degree oven for about 45-60 minutes or until the pie filling is firm. A knife inserted in the middle of the pie should come out clean when the pie is fully cooked.
