Grandma’s Impossible Pie

Grandma’s Impossible Pie

This here is Grandma’s Impossible Pie.⁠

We used to eat it every year at Christmas, and I have recently learned why: the “impossible” part of the name refers to how it must be impossible for such an easy pie to be so dang good,⁠ which makes it the perfect second dessert to feed a big family. Christmas and Thanksgiving feasts are a lot of work, why not let at least one dish be easy?

Seriously though, all you have to do to make this amazing pie is throw these ingredients together and toss it in the oven. No crust, no complicated recipe, just a couple minutes of prep and half an hour of baking. You really can’t argue with that.

In the bus baking is a little more complicated, as we don’t have an oven. But if you are interested in stovetop baking, you can read my stovetop baking tutorial here.
