Impossible Coconut Pie from Gooseberry Patch’s Quick and Easy Autumn

I am a little later than I wanted to be getting this recipe published but I have 101 things going on this Thursday morning!  I think you know I love pie.  LOVE IT. Wrote a book about it I love it so much!  And this pie recipe I am about to share  is a keeper!    Made in a blender? How much easier could it be? And extra points for making its own crust!!!

I made two versions (another reason it took a little longer) – Sugar Free/Gluten Free Impossible Coconut Pie and the recipe straight out of Gooseberry Patch’s Quick & Easy Autumn.  I have the recipe below for you with notes about how to make it Sugar Free /Gluten Free and also one or the other :)

Impossible Coconut Pie

Impossible Coconut Pie (original recipe)

  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup biscuit baking mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup shredded coconut

Pour all ingredients into a blender; blend for 2-3 minutes.  Pour into a buttered 9″-10″ pie plate.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until set.  Makes 6-8 servings

Gluten Free/Sugar Free Impossible Coconut Pie

  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup Splenda for baking
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Gluten Free biscuit baking mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup shredded coconut

Pour all ingredients into a blender; blend for 2-3 minutes.  Pour into a buttered 9″-10″ pie plate.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until set.  Makes 6-8 servings.

MY NOTES: I upped the baking mix in the sugar free/gluten free version.   It needed more dry ingredient.  And it was a good decision.  So you want to consider that if you make the gluten free version.  Also, you could just substitute the gluten free baking mix or just the sugar depending on your dietary needs.

You will notice the top and even the texture looks different on the pies.  They were a little different consistency going in the oven but the outcome on the SF/GF version is very good. I really enjoyed a slice of the SF/GF version for my mid morning snack!
Scrumptious!!!  I put the other away for the kids’ dessert tonight.

I will definitely be making this again!

Yummy! Can’t wait to give this recipe a try! Thanks for sharing! :)

That does sound good. I’d have to put together some baking mix in order to try it. Thanks reviewing the Gooseberry Patch cookbook. Well done!

Actually, the gluten free one looks more appetizing….

My family doesn’t really like coconut (one too many bunny cakes back in the day) but this might change their minds. Looks delicious!

This looks so good! I just found some coconut in my pantry, maybe I’ll make one tomorrow! Would love to win the cookbook too.
