1 cup pinto beans (canned or cooked), drained

4 ounces butter or margarine (not light or diet)

1 1/2 to 2 cups sugar

3 teaspoons vanilla

2 tablespoons molasses or dark corn syrup

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional

1 unbaked pie shell

Instructions: Place drained beans in a bowl and mash using a fork or pastry blender. You can leave a few chunks if you want to.

In a separate bow, cream the butter and sugar together; add the vanilla, molasses or dark corn syrup, salt and beaten eggs and mix well.

Combine this mixture with the mashed pinto beans and again mix well.

Now spread the filling mixture into the unbaked pie shell. You can sprinkle chopped pecans on top if you want to.

Bake the pie in a 350* oven for about 45-60 minutes or until the pie filling is firm. A knife inserted in the middle of the pie should come out clean when the pie is fully cooked.
