Vintage Pinto Bean Pie

by 247tasty

Old recipe but still works in this modern age! My grandma used to make this incredible Bean Pie. She loved working around the kitchen and her number one customer and critique were me! We spent a lot of time together in the kitchen. She taught me everything I know in the kitchen and I am so grateful for that. Now, as a way of thanking her, I decided to bake this amazing Pinto Bean Pie. This was her favorite type of pie. It is really simple to make. You will only be needing 8 ingredients for this perfect treat! This is perfect to eat pretty much any time of the day and after eating pretty much every food. Once you get a bite of this heaven-like pie, you will surely want more! That’s usually the case every time I make this at home. My kids could not get enough of it that’s why I make sure to bake 3 or more pies. Imagine 3 pies a day. Yeah, that’s how awesome this pie is! I’ll stop writing now so you can focus on preparing the ingredients. Enjoy!

1 cup of sugar
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
