  1. Soak the beans in the water overnight. The next morning, take the hull off beans. Place beans in a saucepan and add water to cover. Do not add seasoning. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook until beans are very tender, about 1 hour. Drain; when they have cooled slightly, mash beans.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Combine sugar, flour, butter, vanilla, eggs, and salt. Mix well. Stir in mashed beans; add cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cream.
  4. Pour into a pie shell. Bake until a knife inserted near the center of the pie comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving. Store pie in refrigerator.

I loved this recipe. The pie was absolutely delicious that you couldn't tell it was made from beans. My family gotes through them so fast, I have to make extras!

This is delicious. It's pretty rich though, better have some ice cold milk handy. The one thing I will change next time however is to reduce the amount of clove. It was a little over powering.

I attempted this recipe with the substitution of a can of butter beans instead of making them from dry. It must not have been enough beans or something, because despite following the recipe the ...

Very tasty. Maybe a little too sweet for me so will make it with less sugar next time.

Who would know that a bean pie could taste so good!

This pie was simple to assemble. I also used a can of butter beans (I'm almost sure it was a 16 oz can) and the beans measured out to exactly a cup. I mashed them up after taking of the hulls an...
