You can generally divide the world up into two camps — those who like crust on their pie, and those who don’t.

Me, I swing both ways, depending on the day and my mood. While the crust on a pie can offer an intriguing and flaky counterpoint to the softer, sweeter filling, sometimes, especially as the family cook or baker, it just gets in the way of me getting a pie on the table.

Pumpkin Impossible Pie recipe on ShockinglyDelicious.comMy mother and I discovered “Impossible Pies” in the 1970s, and made them often for our family of 6. We were a dessert-loving family, and they filled up 4 hungry teenagers, on a budget. An Impossible Pie uses baking mix in the filling to create a crustless, quiche-like concoction, so you don’t fuss with making or rolling out a crust. I’ll show you.

How to make a Pumpkin Impossible Pie

Ingredients for Pumpkin Impossible Pie on a white marble counter on ShockinglyDelicious.comFirst, as always, assemble your ingredients so you know you have everything.

Pour pie filling from blender container into the pie dishWhirl everything in a blender for a minutes, and then pour into the prepared pie dish.

Make your own whipped cream topping on ShockinglyDelicious.comIf you want to make your own sweetened whipped cream, all you need is heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, a bowl, a whisk and a little arm power. Seriously, you don’t have to get out any appliances or electric mixers unless you want to. Suit yourself.

Substitutions in the recipe for Pumpkin Impossible Pie

You can substitute many of the ingredients in this recipe. Use what you have, I always say! 

  1. Instead of the half and half, use a 12-ounce can of evaporated milk.
  2. Instead of olive oil, use 2 tablespoon melted butter or another unflavored oil.
  3. Instead of pumpkin pie spice blend, use 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves.
  4. If you don’t have Bisquick, use 1/2 cup flour, 3/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/8 tsp. salt and increase the oil in the recipe by 1 tablespoon.
  5. If you are gluten-free, substitute a gluten-free baking mix instead of Bisquick, or make your own gf baking mix by using gf flour and following the other ingredients in #4 above.

One of my favorites of all the Impossible Pies has always been the Pumpkin Impossible Pie, and if you’ve never tried one, now’s the time! It will probably be the easiest pie you ever make.

Pumpkin Impossible Pie

Pumpkin Impossible Pie has you whirl pumpkin custard ingredients in a blender with baking mix, for a flavor-packed crustless pie.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup baking mix (such as Bisquick; I like Bisquick Heart Smart version)
  • 2 tablespoons light-flavored olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups half and half
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie mix, which has sugar and seasonings)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Garnish: sweetened whipped cream, if you like

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350F degrees. Mist a 9-inch pie dish with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender container. Whirl for a minute or so, until well combined. (If you don't have a blender, you may mix everything well in a mixing bowl using a whisk.)
  3. Pour into the prepared pie dish, and bake until set in the center, about 50-55 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, cool completely, and cut into wedges to serve.
  5. Serves 6.
  6. SUBSTITUTIONS: Use a 12-ounce can of evaporated milk instead of the half and half. Use 2 tablespoon melted butter or another unflavored oil instead of the olive oil. Use 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg and 1/4 tsp. ground cloves instead of the pumpkin pie spice blend. If you don't have Bisquick, use 1/2 cup flour, 3/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/8 tsp. salt and increase the oil by 1 tablespoon.

Notes

Recipe source: family of Dorothy Reinhold | Shockingly Delicious. I don't recall where my mother and I got the recipe, but I'll bet it was off the back of the Bisquick box. We have altered it slightly over the years to suit ourselves.
