Impossible Pumpkin Pie Recipe:

What is an Impossible Pumpkin Pie? It’s a magic pumpkin pie that is impossibly easy to make. Trust me, you cannot screw up this pie.  The magic ingredient is Bisquick. Somehow, someway, you mix together all the ingredients and pour it into a pan (WITHOUT A PIE CRUST), and everything moves and settles. Before you know it, you have a perfect, tasty pumpkin pie that forms its own crust. Pure Magic.

Now, this needs to stated…this magic pumpkin pie will not ever replace our Grandma’s Pumpkin Chiffon Pie.  These two recipes are in two completely different ballgames.  Grandma’s version is airy and light, and this recipe is a dense, traditional pie. I love them both.  In all honesty, I think this one is easier to make.

Why is it called an Impossible Pie?

Impossible Pies makes their own crust which sounds quite impossible!  Bisquick Baking Mix is used in most impossible pies to magically make a crust.  All the ingredients are blended together, yet during the baking process, the layers separate into two layers.

How to Make Magic Pumpkin Pie:

  • Pour into prepared pie plate.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until center is set.
