Everyday Cheapskate: Pie for Dinner?

Mary Hunt on

If you shy away from making homemade pies because of the crust (it can be tricky, and there's all that rolling), you are in for a treat. Meet the "impossible pie."

Impossible pies are quick, easy and very family-friendly. But what is it that makes them seemingly impossible? The crust starts out as almost liquid; you pour it over the top of the pie and then somehow, in the baking process, the crust finds its way to the bottom and turns into a fabulously delicious pie.

All of the recipes that follow call for "Master Mix," which is our homemade version of Bisquick. You'll find the recipe for Master Mix below.


1 pound ground beef

1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese (not nonfat)


1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 cups (8 ounces) mozzarella cheese, shredded

3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1 6-ounce can tomato paste
