Crust-Less Pie Recipes

My mom used to make a crust-less buttermilk pie that I loved. She said there used to be lots of pies (dinner and dessert) that make their own crust. If you have some meat-free dinner and dessert crust-less pie recipes, please share!

    Google “impossible pie.” Or check out the Betty Crocker website. They all use Bisquick mixtures to make the crust. I make my own Bisquick substitute, which works perfectly in every Bisquick recipe I have tried. It’s cheaper, and I can control the fat in it – no transfats in my substitute!

    In my family, we call this “Blender Pie” (’cause we always whipped it up in the blender), but it doesn’t call for Bisquick. Essentially it is custard with a bit of added flour. I’ve long ago lost the paper recipe, but here’s what I remember.

    4 eggs
    2 cups milk
    1/3-2/3 cups sugar (depends on how sweet you like it)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/4 tsp salt
    2/3 cups flour
    1/2 stick butter, melted.
    dash of nutmeg, cinnamon, or other favorite spice

    Mix all ingredients in blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into a lightly greased pie plate, and bake at 350 for about an hour, or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean. TIP: place the empty pie plate on the oven rack, and then pour in the mixture. Fewer spills that way. :-)

    Once the pie is baked, you have a custardy top, with a thicker bottom “crust”. Wonderfully tasty!

    You can sprinkle a little coconut on top, for a lovely golden “crust”. We’ve also flavored this pie with Irish Cream, Kahlua, or crushed up candy canes.
