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!

First GiveAway of 2010! And find out how to get your recipe published in my next cookbook!

WOW it is somekinda chilly here this morning.  Its a little after 6 a.m. and the mercury says its 22F and it “feels like” 14F.  What does that mean?  Is it 22 or is it 14?  Even the little birdies are trying to stay warm!

n1558315783_140922_5164I will have to check their feeders today.  And put out some warmer water for them.  I am sure there is not a drop of water outside that isn’t frozen.

I hope you can all manage to stay warm today – being inside will likely be your best bet!  While you are in sipping your hot beverage, why not leave me a comment and consider yourself entered in the first GiveAway of 2010!  Yep!  You heard me!  Tell me about your very favorite winter beverage and leave me the recipe if you like.  What’s the prize you ask?  Oh, there is more than one prize!! You can win one of these:

Cool huh?  I have just a couple of copies left of each and I want two of you to have them! I will draw for them next Friday! Feel free to share this on your own blog if you like!

Now, about the other brainstorm I had! How about a Friends of NotQuiteJuneCleaver cookbook! Sound like fun??? Yeah, I thought so too! I will give you more details as I get them finalized.  The title of the book is “Friends of NotQuiteJuneCleaver Cook!” You know you want to join me in this project!  Here are the things I do know for sure:

  • I need you and your help/input/recipes if this is going to happen!
  • each recipe will bear the name of the person submitting it
  • photos of the recipe are welcome – color please! (used at my discretion)
  • photos of you are welcome as well :) how about in your favorite apron?
  • recipes need to be tried and true and double/triple checked for accuracy please
  • you may submit more than one recipe if they are in different categories (example: a cookie, a casserole, a side)
  • contributors will be able to buy as many copies as you wish at cost plus shipping – naturally the more pages, the more it will cost but I will keep it below $20US before shipping (this isn’t a commercial project for me) I will be donating my time putting it together
  • since I have set a $$ limit this means a page limit so as soon as you have all the info, get your recipes/photos/info in!
  • recipes from places other than the US are MORE THAN welcome, but please give US measurements along with your usual measurements.

Does this sound like fun or what!? I will be posting all the particulars on how to submit your recipes, photos, deadlines  etc by next Friday in a separate post from the giveaway post. I would love to have this project ready for your consumption by Mother’s Day 2010.  Can we do this?  Let’s do our best!  I will be working on two other cookbooks along with this one, so your contributions are essential.  If you don’t participate, it won’t happen!

Let’s start 2010 off with some fun!

And why don’t you join us over at the NotQuiteJuneCleaver Forums!
