  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 12 ounces evaporated milk
  • 4 ounces water
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

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


  • What is an impossible pie? It's a super easy pie that magically forms its own crust. Back in the day, the Bisquick company printed the recipes on the back of the box.
  • Looking for an airy and light version of pumpkin pie? Try Grandma's Pumpkin Chiffon Pie.
  • The best part of this pie is that you toss all the ingredients together in the mixer. One step and done.
  • Not sure what 4 ounces of water is? Here's a trick. Pour the 12 ounce can of evaporated milk into a liquid measure and add enough water to make 2 cups.
  • No pie crust is required for this pie.
  • Bisquick Impossible Pumpkin Pie is flavored with a blend of ground cloves, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.  In a pinch, you can leave out one or two of these, just double the others.
  • Pumpkin pie spice could also be substituted for the four spices this recipe calls for. 
  • Be sure to use a deep dish, 10-inch pie pan so it doesn't over flow.  
  • To be safe, put a pan underneath the pie in the oven to catch overflow.
