Impossible Pie has been around for a long time and I can see why. It’s easy to make and is scrumptious to eat! Why is it called Impossible Pie? I think it has something to do with the fact that it bakes it’s own crust. All the ingredients are dumped into the pie plate and you let your oven work it’s magic to do the “impossible”. It comes out with three delicious layers!
The filling is an egg custard that’s creamy and smooth. The topping is a crunchy layer of coconut. It looks a lot like my Coconut Pie!
Grandma’s everywhere have recipes like this one. It’s easy to see why it’s stood the test of time.
How to Make Impossible Pie
Start by adding the butter, flour, sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, milk and shredded coconut to a bowl. Beat together until the mixture is combined.
Pour into a greased 9″ pie pan. Bake for 1 hour at 350F.

The easiest pie you will ever bake! It magically forms its own crust plus two delicious layers while baking.

- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Add all ingredients to a large bowl and beat together until combined.
- Pour into a 9-inch greased pie pan. Bake for 1 hour or until centre is firm and pie is golden.
