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
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.
