With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Impossible Coconut Custard Pie

Impossible Coconut Custard Pie

This is the most popular post on my blog and for good reason.  It is a breeze to make and so delicious.

Unable to find my recipe for Amazing Coconut Pie (the kind that uses Bisquick to make its own crust), I went searching through my cookbooks and found a similar one.
Well, I need not search any further because this new version is so much better!
Incredibly creamy, delicious and not 'egg-y'.
It has a wonderful texture.

 The recipe still uses Bisquick baking mix but the ingredient that totally takes the taste over the top is the sweetened condensed milk.

It is perfect for any time of the year but especially lovely served for an Easter breakfast or brunch.

I make it frequently. Because the ingredients are staples in my pantry, I turn to the recipe when I need to make a dessert last minute.

I had to laugh when I read the title of this post! Any pie is "impossible' for me! But your pie looks awesome!

That photo is perfect...it ought to be in a beautiful cookbook!

Looks fantastic! It made it's own crust? So even a baking-challenged person can do well with this one? I have to try this.

Lady Farmer said...

It's not chocolate, but this looks like something I would love to try! It certainly looks delicious! I'm so glad you couldn't find your old standby recipe! Thanks for sharing this one!
Blessings!

Years ago our girls would make an 'impossible' coconut pie a couple of times a week, as I remember fondly. How they loved to bake! And what a great recipe that was, I'm sure I must have it written down somewhere here. I try not to bake much these days, but its oh so tempting. Your new recipe looks luscious. Being lactose intolerant saves me a few caloriew anyway! But I used to love all the baking we did too.

Tracy said...

WEll, I thought I'd sent the comment but I'll give it another try...it disapperared into Cyber Space!
What I said was I made a recipe like this when I was in high shcool and I loved it; didn't remember it until I saaw yours...YUM!
Uh, did you take the calories out of it? :)

Dayle said...

That sounds so easy and yummy. Can't wait to try it.

Kathleen said...

It looks delicious, L! Love the lily of the valley too!
I still have that little pamphlet with all the impossible pie recipes from so long ago!

Buttercup said...

Refrigerate leftovers? Ha! This looks delicious and I don't think there will be much left over.

Mildred said...

This looks so good. Larry has a birthday coming up and coconut is his fav!

Julie said...

This is a crust I could make! I am so crust challenged! I am not a huge coconut fan but this looks amazingly good.

The lilies of the valley are so pretty. My favorite Spring flower, reminds me of my grandmother!

Julie Harward said...

Oh YUM! I know this is good because I used to make it a lot a few years ago..I think I will be making it again..thanks! :D

CJ said...

I remember making MANY different Bisquick Impossible Pies! I might even have the recipes in some box that hasn't been unpacked for three moves. So did you use Bisquick for your biscuit mix in this?? It sure does look good.

Paula {Salad in a Jar} said...

WOW! That looks so creamy and so much better than any "impossible" pie I ever made or tasted. May have to give this classic another look.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I've made the other version... This sounds great and I do already have the coconut:@)

Vivienne said...

I've never tried the impossible, but since coconut pie is my very favorite, your recipe is definitely worth a try.

Dreamgoddess said...

What a beautiful photo! Coconut is one of my weaknesses, so I can't wait to try this recipe.

ButterYum said...

I've never heard of this recipe, but wow, it looks amazing! Might have to make it for a picnic this weekend ;).

Fabulous photo - Happy FF.

What a beautiful picture! I will have to try this one because something that beautiful has to taste delicious, too!

Janell said...

I loved the idea of this dessert because it's preparation is so low key.

Unfortunately, I'm unimpressed by the end product. The flavor is nice: sweet and eggy; reminiscent of flan or tapioca though an entirely different texture. It is a nice dessert, but it doesn't inspire me to reach for a second slice.

In the pros column, its preparation results in less mess than a box of brownies.

I love Bisquick pies http://anickh.blogspot.com/2012/10/impossible-raspberry-cream-pie-bob.html

Vicki said...

I made this last night and today I am forced to make another one because the whole pie went in a flash. It was delicious. It takes no time to make. In fact my oven wasn't even pre heated by the time I made the batter. Yep, that quick. I posted the picture of my finished pie and I got so many requests for a slice, lol.. Thanks for the great recipe. Love it and I will be making this a lot I'm sure because it's my husbands favorite pie.

Cathy Pedrick said...

I'm on round 2 and this time forced to make TWO because one is just silly!! Lol wonderful and loved by all, this pie doesn't last in my house!! I decorated with small pineapple, cream cheese and confectionary sugar truffles, rolled in coconut this time, so let's see how they like that??? Thanks for this wonderful recipe!!

Rachel Page said...

This was SO GOOD! My very favorite pie! Thanks!

Brittany Murillo said...

I Didn't have Bisquick so I used 1/3 cup flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Turned out soo yummy! I wonder, could you omit the coconut to make a plain custard pie? Should I increase any ingredients to make up for the volume of coconut? My husband LOVES custard.

Brittany Murillo said...

So I tried it without coconut last night to make a plain custard pie. I added an egg to make a total of 4. It was very firm, so I think it could have even done without the addition. My husband LOVED it. I prefer it with coconut but he is coo coo for custard. It was awesome! We will be using this recipe a lot!

Patricia Chidovich said...

I made this a few times, I Love it.....Everyone wanted the recipe!

AMFM said...

I've just come upon this recipe and it looks so good. Would I be able to use a cake mixer instead of a blender? Or is a blender necessary?
Thank you.

Hamatake Homestead said...

Has anyone tried this with gluten free Bisquick?

Nikki Walker said...

I love all of these creamy pies too. But I unfortunately I too am lactose intolerant.

Julie Riffey said...

Today is my 2nd time making this pie in two weeks (holiday season).It was such a hit at a party i took it to, I am making for my family xmas eve get together for tomorrow. VERY easy to make and not that many ingredients that i didnt already have. Makes its own crust. I recommend it!

Julie Riffey said...
