Classic Bean Pie

Cecelia Anderson


Before my children were born, we used to visit this really nice couple we met while attending college. We would have dinner together, and one of the things my friend would bake were bean pies. The recipe she gave me I changed, and made it my own. The consistency and texture on this pie is very nice, and would go great with a whipped topping or vanilla icecream.
