What if you could create a luscious coconut custard pie simply by blending together some common ingredients? Impossible, you say?
It is possible and that's the beauty of this vintage recipe called, appropriately enough, Impossible Pie. It's truly simple and quick and foolproof, a wonderful shortcut without using any real shortcuts (i.e., processed ingredients that wouldn't be found in your grandmother's pantry).
The mis-en-place is below. You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen.
Blend everything together, except the coconut, which is added at the end.
Pour into a greased pie plate and bake in a preheated oven.
Production notes: I followed this exactly, and made sure the butter was very soft, Place the filled pie plate on a larger tray before baking, to prevent spillage in the oven. There was a crust at the bottom, but because I didn't use a metal pie pan, it wasn't as pronounced as it could have been. I also baked a few minutes longer than recommended, as the pie seemed rather jiggly at 45 minutes.
