In the 1980s impossible pie recipes could be found on the back of boxes and in the pages of every magazine. The "impossible" part being that the pie made it's own crust. No need to roll out pie dough or pulverize Graham crackers. Typically a baking mix like Bisquick was involved and the "crust" that formed was a cake-like base.
I decided that an impossible pie was the perfect fit for my lazy mood. I did a little digging through old cookbooks and found a recipe that appears to have originated from Bisquick, for an Impossible Brownie Pie. It looked amazing! I made a few adjustments to suit my tastes and came up with this delicious and rich pie. Who knew laziness could be so rewarding?!
- You can use regular baking mix instead of the buttermilk variety if that's what you have on hand. I used Pioneer Brand Buttermilk baking mix and liked the little bit of tanginess it lent.
