Grandma’s Impossible Coconut Pie

Grandma is the kind of person that always comes through when families are faced with hard times.

Whether it’s a funeral, an illness, or another sad or trying event, Grandma believes that a meal can lift the spirits.

Especially dessert.

And even more when that dessert is Grandma’s Impossible Coconut Pie.

Because she delivers on her promise to always come through, even when time is short, she has this go-to dish that she always sends.

This pie is so easy and quick to make and it tastes great!  And while most recipes require Bisquick, this is a simple recipe for coconut pie you can make without Bisquick.

In fact, no matter where this pie has been taken, the plate ALWAYS comes back empty!

Tips & Information

This pie goes into the oven as a liquid, so to avoid spills from the counter to the oven, I recommend a 10″ or deeper pie plate. 

Impossible pie makes its own crust, so you don’t need to roll a crust or even get a pre-made crust. Like I said above, you can make this Impossible Coconut Pie without Bisquick.

It is best to use fresh coconut.  The taste will be better with fresh ingredients.

Don’t tell anyone how easy it is to make.
