Anyone willing to share their Bean Pie recipe?

I attended a fall supper in a small french community in Manitoba last year and was intrigued by the bean pie offered as one of the many delightful pie options. I have always, always made pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving but would love to try bean pie! If I'm going to test it out on family, I don't want to test something willy-nilly from online....any favorites you're willing to reveal?

  1. never heard of it sweet or savory?

    1. I made a bean pie last week when I was making a raspberry tart. The tart shell had to be baked blind, and I forgot to line the shell with parchment before filling it with the beans that I use for pie weights, but I don't think that's what you had in mind.

          This was nothing like I had in mind, but something I think I'll have to try nonetheless.

            Bostonbob, I've read cookbooks and recipes for years and I've never seen anything like this. I'm anxious to try it. Thank you!

              We like our beans here in Boston. :)

          2. I have one from Kentucky, called pinto bean pie. Let me know if this might be it and I'll send the recipe:)

            1. Pinto bean pie is sweet, using corn syrup, butter, sugar eggs and vanilla.

                Yes, the one I had was sweet, pureed beans, similar to some pumpkin pies I've had
