BeatleNut Pie

Janice MacRossin


This recipe was often made by my Mother when I lived as a child in LaMarque Texas. My Dad's boss Jim (who later became my Godfather) would often be invited to dinner, and he was especially fond of this pie. Looking into the origins of the name, I came up empty handed, until I saw that in the early 60's Baskin Robbins had an ice cream flavor called "BeatleNut", which was an homage to The Beatles rock group. I'm thinking this maybe the origin of this name as well, because on the original hand written recipe, given to my Mother by her neighbor Doris, it was labeled as "Beatles Nut" pie.
