Beans-in-a-HolePink Adobe Apple Pie

This is a famous dessert served at the Pink Adobe restaurant in Santa Fe. The Pink Adobe is the oldest restaurant in Santa Fe, it opened over 60 years ago. The pie is a delicious blend of apples, spices, nuts and raisins. It's a Santa Fe favorite - don't overlook the sauce.
