Impossible Pumpkin Pie

This pie recipe is far from impossible; in fact, it’s one of the easiest pies you can make! There is no pie crust to make, and the ingredients are simply mixed together, poured into a pie plate, and baked. A delicate crust will form while baking, and the end result is a creamy, custardy pumpkin pie that is delicious on its own or topped with homemade whipped topping

Impossible Pumpkin Pie Ingredients

Bisquick: Bisquick is a premade baking mix most commonly known to be used for pancakes and waffles. But, as in this recipe, it can be used in many more recipes! You can also purchase Gluten-Free Bisquick if you are trying to limit gluten.

Evaporated Milk: Evaporated milk is canned milk also known as unsweetened condensed milk. It does not contain added sugar like sweetened condensed milk. In a pinch, you could substitute half-and-half for the evaporated milk, but the taste of the pie will probably be richer (and we haven’t tested that substitute in the recipe).

Pumpkin Puree: Make sure you are using pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling.

Pumpkin Pie Spice: Of course, this recipe needs some pumpkin pie spice. If you don’t have any on hand, it’s easy to make your own pumpkin spice!

Can I Use a Different Sized Pie Plate?

Yes! I used a deep, 8-inch pie plate for a thicker pie. You could also use a 9-inch or 10-inch pie plate. However, the pie will be thinner and you may have to adjust the baking time (checking the pie at about 45 minutes).

How to Store and Freeze Impossible Pie

Pumpkin pie should be refrigerated and if stored in an airtight container or covered well, should last 3-4 days.

To freeze:

  • Let your pie cool completely.
  • Tightly wrap with plastic wrap (so no whipped cream yet!) until it is well sealed. Then place in a freezer-safe sealable plastic bag or wrap it with aluminum.
  • Label and date. It should last 2-3 months.

How to Thaw Frozen Pumpkin Pie

Remove the pie from the freezer and remove it from the plastic bag or aluminum foil. Place in the refrigerator to thaw overnight.

  1. I made this Pumpkin pie this weekend. It was delicious!! I didn’t miss the crust, I wasn’t sure how that was all going to work with the bisquick but it turned out! Thanks for always sharing such great recipes!!!

  2. I love your recipes, this is more of a comment on my personal tastes. I love pumpkin pie.
    This impossible pumpkin pie was about the same amount of work minus the crust. I always make my own scratch crust. For me I just prefer the taste and texture of standard pumpkin pie.

  3. Awesome I have been looking for this recipe for quite a few years and I am so happy to have Google. One of my favorite sister in law made it for Christmas one year and everyone loved it but through the years we have all grown apart for many reasons, divorce, death or just growing old.
    But it will always be a favorite of mine.

  4. My hub’s favorite Thanksgiving treat is Pumpkin Pie and this recipe idea was a hit with him. I admit to not loving Pumpkin Pie but this recipe’s seasonings really won me over. Thanks for the recipe.
