Southwestern Black Bean Stew
Didn't have tomato paste so I used one 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes. Used the Taco Seasoning I Recipe from this site instead of a store-bought mix. Can be spiced up and revised according to use (soup or dip). This is very easy, fast, and filling on a cold Winter's night.

Tar Heel Pie
Just tried this in my 8X11 glass pan and made these into bars. Pie crust made using same portions as a nine inch deep dish pie. Since the filling completely covers the crust, I bake the crust about 15 minutes first. I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and used sliced almonds instead of pecans. Lastly, I subtracted about 10 minutes from bake time. So easy and so delicious! You won't be disappointed.

Easy Pie Crust
I use the Vanilla Pumpkin Pie Recipe with this crust following the cooking directions to the Pumpkin Pie instead of the crust. I did not cover the crust with foil (to protect from burning) but did sit the pie tin on a pan in case of spills. My metal pie pan is a deeper than the regular disposable aluminum ones you buy and I pat my crust so it fills the bottom and sides. I also followed the advice of other bakers using 1 tbsp of sugar and .5 tsp of salt for dessert recipes. I've used corn oil a few times and canola oil another time with little difference in consistency. Baking is slightly longer as you want your toothpick poked in the center to come out clean - I added 3-5 minutes. (I deviate from the pumpkin pie recipe by adding more cinnamon.) I've rolled pie crust and like this recipe better for ease and flakier consistency. It's also easier to gauge how thick your pie crust will be as you pat it into your pan. I've made this combination 4 times - none of the pies lasted more than a day. Thanks for the great recipe!
