    Learned of Bean Pie while studying w/the Nation of Islam. Time w/the NOI left a lasting impression. Finally gave me knowledge of self & became an open door to a path of enlightenment as far as being a Black women in America goes. It restored some of what has been taken & gave me what I needed to keep learning. I loved that there were traditions being restored & handed down. One of those traditions was the making of the bean pie &how it came about. That history should at least be cited. Is it?

      Thank you Sis.Kelani. The Muslim bean pie is definitely a NOI tradition. And, part of the history being cited should the fact that it was actually patented by the NOI. Just another creation by our people. I actually make a splendid honey bean pie that has one ingredient that is omitted in the above recipe.

    Everyone has there own version of this pie. I have been making it for some time. Traditionally, it has vanilla cinnamon and nutmeg. Feel free to season it as you would pumpkin or sweet potato pie. A tip, for the candied, brown top I put cold butter in last. It will float to the top and form a beautiful top. I usually make 4 pies at a time regular not deep dish on this one... Do yourself a favor, Try this!
