  • 2 cups mashed mirlitons
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 eggs

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. Then place them in a food processor (or mash) until mixture is consistent with applesauce. Set aside. Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Melt butter in a bowl and then beat in eggs, then sugar, then biscuit mix, cooked mirliton mash, and vanilla. Put in a 10-inch pie dish and bake about 45 minutes.
