What’s a Bean Pie?
Bean pies are masterfully described by the Chicago reader as a pies built on a whole‐wheat crust, with a filling of strained and mashed navy beans, butter, raw sugar, milk, eggs, cinnamon, and other baking spices, it develops a mildly sweet, dense, custardy understory, with a browned layer on top which is the result of the butter rising and browning in the heat of the oven. If nobody tipped you off to the fact that you were eating pie made from mashed navy beans, you could be forgiven for thinking it was sweet potato or pumpkin pie.
