So Good You'll Slap Your Mama!

Bisquick Impossible Buttermilk Pie
I've been making this custard-like pie for nearly as long as I am old. I can go from start to finish in under 45 minutes, and have a pie on the table. It's easy, it's quick, and it tastes good; that is my kind of recipe. Don't be put off by the fact that it has buttermilk if you don't like buttermilk. You will not taste it. I solemn pinkie promise. Now, go make one and tell me what you think!

Bisquick Impossible Buttermilk Pie

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Bisquick baking mix, or any other brand baking mix (I used Kroger's brand)
1/3 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
*1 tsp lemon extract*optional (I like the hint of lemon flavor it gives it)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease a 9" pie plate (I use a nonstick spray)
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend on high for 30 seconds;
or mix in a bowl with a hand mixer for 1 minute
Pour into greased pie plate and bake for 30 minutes, or until sharp knife inserted in center comes out clean
Cool 5 minutes before slicing.
You can eat it warm or chill it in the fridge first, it's great both ways.

LOL your title cracked me up Renna!!

I wanted to say "so good, it will make you WANT to slap your Mama", but I thought that was a bit too long. ;-Þ

smariek said...

What's the difference between "baking mix" and flour?

Thanks for sharing the recipe, it looks super easy, just my kind of recipe too! Of course I'd have to add another 45 minutes for prep-time if I do it with my DD. It's amazing how even the simplest things can get dragged out when a toddler is involved...

-Marie, the baking-challenged... :-)

I have a silly question...is this a dessert? It sounds really interesting.

magnoliasntea said...

Mmmm..the pie sounds very good. I can see me adding chocolate somehow, too.

I love buttermilk...farm fresh, not from the store. :)I need a cow. :)

Tracy Batchelder said...

Yummy. I have a recipe for a pie like that. There's also a no crust chocolate version that's good too.

That post title cracked me up. I have never heard of this pie, but it sounds amazing. Would you do me the honor of linking to my Fall Into Flavor recipe carnival at my place either for this past Monday or next Monday? People would love this pie.

Joansie said...

Sure sounds yummy to me. I'll have to try it!

Nancy said...

By now, I should know better than read your entries when I am hungry!

Your pie looks like a great quick dessert.

Claudia said...

I'll definitely be trying this one, thanks! *hugs*

Sharon said...

Girl, I've seen your recipe before, and have yet to make it.....BUT it's coming up Thanksgiving and I'm giving it a try before making a few for our holiday table.
Thanks Dolly Girl!

Liz Harrell said...

Wow! I'm so trying this!

Patty H. said...

that does look good!
Adn easy.
Just surfing blogs and foudn your site.

Renna said...

Smariek, baking mix would contain the shortening, baking powder, and possibly more? Cooking with toddlers is a fun experience, but one does not get in a hurry! ;-)

Cinnamongirl, yes, this is a dessert. A ooey, gooey, sugary, sweet dessert. ;-)

Tea, you think like me. Chocolate makes the world go round! Wool Winder sent me a similar recipe for making a chocolate pie. Yum, I can't wait to try it!

Wool Winder, thanks for sending me that chocolate recipe. I'm a true chocoholic. ;-)

2nd Cup of Coffee, I'll be happy to link to you just as soon as I figure out how. My Tech Assistant, Marilyn, usually talks me through these things. Bless her heart, she's been sick lately, as has her entire household.

If anyone wants to drop Marilyn a get-well wish, she's at A Mixed Bouquet, http://www.amixedbouquet.com/ .

While you're there, check out her Recipe Blog in her left sidebar. She's got some great recipes!

Joansie, try it, you won't be sorry!

Nancy, I really should start posting disclaimers at the top of appetite stimulating posts. ;-Þ

Claudia, getting through all those radiation treatments and being declared cancer-free, you deserve a treat. Hugs back at you, Sweetie! :-)

Sharon, with the size of your brood when they all gather, you might want to bake a few, alright! ;-)

Liz, you'll have to get your hubby out of the kitchen first. You're so blessed to have a man who cooks!

PattyH, thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I reciprocated and love your blog!

Well this just plain looks like home when I was growing up. Unfortunately, Bisquick, eggs, and butter are on our our no-no list at this stage. It looks good though. Enjoy!!

elizabeth said...

I was giggling when I saw the name of your post, but started drooling as I read it. I have it printed and ready to try probably this weekend even. A girl has to try these things out before making it for a holiday dinner doncha know.

MSM said...

One and 1/2 cups of sugar, it has to be good, right?

Best part is that it's so quick!

WhiteStone said...

Yep! The Impossible Pie is a great concept for busy women. LOL

Anonymous said...

Looks good-I'm going to have to try it!

Renna said...

Becky, truth be told, it should be on my no-no list, too!

Elizabeth, I agree with you. For our families, we must make this sacrifice! ;-Þ

MSM, Good? You betcha! Healthy? Eh..not so much! ;-Þ

Whitestone, yep, it's a perfect pie for a busy woman, or even one like me who's days be can a tad slow at times. ;-)
By the way, I really do like your blog!

Tipper, let me know what you think of it!

Shannon said...

Looks delicious! I have some pear topping I made and was looking for something to put it on. This may be just what I was looking for!

Renna said...

Shannon, I think pear topping would taste great on it. I've served it chilled with fruit salad spooned over the top, and that was really good!

Liz Harrell said...

Happy Halloween!

Brenda Pruitt said...

That's what I like, simple and easy. Looks pretty darned good to me!

Kimmie said...

Pinkie-promise...you made me laugh. Thank you.

Dalyn said...

That looks divine!

Tins and Treasures said...

I copied your recipe into my file, cause I definately want to try it. In school I have the kids make an impossible Pumpkin Pie that has the baking mix in it, and it creates its own crust...so this must do the same thing?

Renna said...

Liz, thank you for stopping by. I hope you didn't jump out and scare your poor hubby on Halloween. ;-)

Brenda, thank you! :-)

Kimmie, I'm glad I made you laugh. I know you need that right now. (((hug)))

Dalyn, thank you! :-)

Tins & Treasures, I'd LOVE that pumkin recipe! I'm sure it's similar to the Buttermilk Pie. It's actually sort of a crustless recipe.

Paula said...

Renna- this sounds kinda like a chess pie but without the eggs... is that what it tastes like?
