Impossible French Apple Pie

As I explained last week when I posted Impossible Taco Pie....'impossible pies' are simply a combination of simple ingredients (usually including Bisquick) which are poured into a pie plate, and then form a magic crust during the baking process. Very easy. And delicious.  Today I am posting a sweet version of the impossible pie...and again I am using the biscuit mix recipe featured on this blog.

  • 5-6 cups tart apples, peeled and sliced (such as Granny Smith)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup 'biscuit mix' (or Bisquick)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, softened
Streusel Topping:
  • 1/2 cup biscuit mix (or Bisquick)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Place apple slices in greased 9-inch pie plate. 
  2. Combine eggs, milk, sugar, baking mix, spices and softened butter in blender.  Blend until smooth...about 15 seconds. Pour over apple mixture in pie plate.
  3. In small bowl, mix all streusel ingredients until crumbly; sprinkle over filling.  
  4. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.  
  5. Serve warm with ice-cream or whipped cream.

Serves 8.  

And that is my 'throwback Thursday' contribution...a recipe from yesteryear!


  1. I remember the “impossible” pies that were so popular back in the ’80s...and my favorite one was the French Apple Pie! I am going to try this soon. Donna

  2. What is baking mix listed in the topping?

    1. Susie is the same 'baking mix/biscuit' linked to earlier in the recipe. I will clarify that as soon as I have access to a computer (we are without power here today, due to a huge windstorm). Thanks for asking!

  3. Thank you Judy, I will be visiting a friend recovering from a knee op next week. I am to take the dessert so I know what it will be now :)

  4. One word - YUM! It sounds so easy too.
