Tips on Making Coconut Pie
Coconut custard pie is one of the well-loved desserts that probably every family has their own version of. Here’s a simple crustless pie recipe that even non-bakers and beginners can follow. To start, here are some helpful tips:
- Use room temperature ingredients so that the pie will cook evenly.
- Have no Bisquick? No worries! Substitute the Bisquick with the same amount of flour mixed with ½ tablespoon of baking powder. It’ll still come out like a real Bisquick impossible pie.
- Mix in other delicious ingredients to your pie filling like walnuts, raisins, and even fresh shredded coconut meat.
- Grease the pie pan well so that the pie can be easily removed later on.
- Top your pie with shredded sharp cheddar cheese for a delicious sweet and salty flavor contrast. You can also simply top it with whipped cream, powdered sugar, almonds, and more toasted coconut flakes.
- This impossible pie forms its own crust. But if you want to, you can bake it in a flaky pie crust. Brush the sides with egg yolk or heavy cream and sprinkle it with brown sugar for a sweet crackly bite.

What is the difference between coconut cream pie and coconut custard pie?

Also, the entire pie is baked in the oven, giving it a crispy golden brown top layer.
Should you refrigerate impossible pie?
Yes. Keep it in an airtight container to prevent it from drying out. It will stay good in the fridge for 4 days, while in the freezer it can last for 2 months. This pie is good to consume hot, cold, or at room temperature.
