Mirliton Pie

Here's a different take on mirlitons. Usually found in a savory dish, here is a dessert pie. Add this recipe to your traditional desserts. You'll be glad you did.

2 cups mashed mirlitons

1 stick butter

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

1 cup biscuit mix

1 teaspoon vanilla

Boil several mirlitons in a large sauce pot until they are tender. After they cool, peel, cut out the seeds, and cut into small pieces. Place them in a food processor (or mash) until it has the consistency of applesauce. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350℉. Melt butter in a bowl then beat in eggs, then sugar, then biscuit mix, cooked mirlitons, and vanilla. Put into a 10-inch pie dish and bake about 45 minutes.
