Everyday Cheapskate: Pie for Dinner?
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.
