This is a mock pecan pie, which is quite similar to pecan pie, except that it uses pinto beans instead of pecans.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 cup pinto beans, drained and mashed
- 1 cup dark corn syrup
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 egg, beaten
- 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C.)
In a large bowl, combine beans, corn syrup, sugar, cornstarch and vanilla. Beat in the eggs. Pour into pie crust.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until filling is set and crust is golden brown.
