Made this for the 1st time for Thanksgiving 2010. It was nice. next time i make it (and i shall) i will use less sugar (just a bit too sweet for me). Nethertheless it was good.

I baked this pie in early1970,ever one thought it was pecan,i had lost my recipe,so now i can fool some more people,It was printed in the Lubbock Texas paper along with a lot more bean recipes,i just lost my whole paper when we moved.

I would've given this 5 stars if it added pecans! However even without pecans it would have been yummy (especially for people who have nut allergies but some crunch factor really makes a difference). I reduced the sugar by 1/3 and it was sweet enough, would make this again.

I prefer the real thing, not mock pecan pie.

If I had mashed up the beans better, I think this would have been a bigger hit. However my sons figured out it was different, so they were already assuming they would not like it. Would try this again if I could figure out a substitute for the dark corn syrup that my diabetic DH can consume.
