Impossible Pie

After last weekend's deluge, we didn't know what kind of weather to expect for Mother's Day. But maybe as a "please forgive me" from mother nature, we had a few days of perfection. When the weather is right, the screened porch is my favorite spot anywhere. It's even better when I get to share it with family. Glad I had part of my brood home for a visit.

I spent more time enjoying family than I did making pictures to share here, but I did manage to get this single photo from the weekend's cooking. I had wanted to try this recipe for a few weeks. This busy weekend was a good time to make it. I have made many "impossible pies" over the years but not a coconut one. It was delicious. And so, so easy.

...magically makes it's own crust!
1/2 cup Bisquick
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 cup milk
1 cup flaked coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon butter, softened

Combine all ingredients and pour into 9-inch greased pie pan. 
Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes until custard sets. 
Like magic it layers into crust, custard, coconut topping. Cool.


  1. So happy to hear that you spent more time enjoying family than making pictures :D

  2. LOVE coconut, and so does Mother. I may have to try this one!
