Mama’s Amazingly Easy Coconut Pie is truly amazing. Delicious and Easy!
Today, I am bringing you a very special pie, for many reasons. For one, it is one of my mother’s favorite pies to make and one of my favorite pies for her to make for me! Another is the personal story behind this pie, which does get a bit depressing. So much so that I am actually putting it at the bottom of this post instead of at the top.
For now, lets just talk about the pie. This is one of the classic “impossible” pies which Bisquick came out with.
Now, I’m not a Bisquick fan. I actually use Pioneer brand baking mix whenever a recipe calls for Bisquick. Why? Its simple: The packaging. The messy cardboard box with the tear open lid has long been left in the dust by the canister style box with the sealing plastic lid. With others, you either have to transplant the entire contents, try to stick the box into a large plastic bag, or just deal with this open box of powdery mess being knocked over repeatedly every time you have to reach for something near it ( My y pantry is not a safe place at times). Pioneer never looked so good. There are also come great recipes on the web for homemade baking mix, and I am determined to try them first chance I get!
Want to know the really cool thing about this pie? You actually mix it up in your blender! With the baking mix working its magic to make the crust as it bakes, this is a great pie to let your little ones help with so they can call it their own. Just toss the ingredients in the blender and let little fingers push the buttons while you hold the lid on!
My mother did this tutorial and as you can see, she does use Bisquick! I need to buy her some more Pioneer today…
