Impossible French Fruit Pie

Sunday, October 20, 2013
If you're not especially fond of baking this easy all-in-one pan fruit pie makes it's own crust using a baking mix and fresh fruits called Impossible French Pie.

The recipe uses fresh fruit, baking mix, and easy pantry ingredients and has a streusel topping much like a Dutch Apple Pie with cinnamon spice flavors.
I remember mom always having the box of baking mix out and knew immediately we were getting a fresh fruit pie from our apple tree.

The combination of fruit pie is endless and if you're a rhubarb lover don't hesitate to try this with that summer delight!

We also had a blueberry bush, a boysenberry bush, and a peach tree, so we dabbled in many combinations with apples and berries mixed together and had a different pie every time she baked it.

This is a recipe adapted from the Bisquick baking mix, although you can use any generic brand, we added to that basic recipe and came up with our own version.

If you're not much of a fruit pie lover, we also include an "Impossible Pumpkin Pie" recipe all in one pie plate and that crazy crust bakes right in that one also plus we also make Savory Impossible Pies you may like to try!
