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.

How to Make Classic Bean Pie

  2. In a blender add the one can of evaporated milk. Then add the beaten eggs and blend. To the eggs and milk add the nutmeg, cinnamon, flour, and vanilla, then blend.
  3. Finally add the butter, bean and sugar mixture. Blend for at least 2 minutes. This will give the pie a nice smooth consistency. Pour into a 9-inch pie shell and bake at 350 degrees until firm and brown. It takes approximately 60 minutes to bake.
