bean pie question & fat-free pie crust recipe

Has anyone ever had bean pie? What did you think of it? I'm considering attempting one, but I'm very lukewarm-leaning-towards-dislike about bean brownies, which makes me suspicious that bean pie would be a vain effort. But maybe bean pies are a whole different ballgame?

And: I found this recipe that I thought was worth sharing. I'm trying it today, so I can't vouch for the quality, but I thought it'd grab the curiosities of some other folks, too. And who knows? Even if I don't end up liking it, maybe someone else will.


1 apple, peeled and cored
1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbs. vodka
1 tsp. baking powder


Boil apple until soft. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until it forms a ball. (Or, use the traditional method of pushing apple through a sieve and then mix together with other ingredients.) The dough will be sticky. Refrigerate 2-3 hours. Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove dough from refrigerator, roll out and place in a pie pan. Bake 15 minutes. Put pie filling in shell and bake according to instructions for pie
