My husband loves coconut cream pie. This sounds close.

Someone suggested adding cocoa.

I'm skeptical. Let me know if it works. I hate coconut, but wonder if I could leave that off or of there's something else that would work. The crust and custard part sound good.

That's similar to how pecan pie is made - the pecans and custard/goo separate during baking - but that's poured into a prepared crust.  I'm interested to hear if the crust really comes out in this recipe.

My mom use to make this pie when I was a kid.  There is a custard version too.

A gluten-free modified version of thatbis going down in my house right now:

This seemed like a good intro for me into gluten free baking, since itís not dependent on the crumb.

I couldnít even wait for it to cool.  I cut the sugar to 3/4 cup, and used 2% milk.  It tastes similar to a coconut flan.  Seriously yummy.  DH gives it 2 thumbs up.

We have made impossible pie many times and enjoyed it.  Thanks for the GF recipe!  I'll have to give it a try with Enjoy Life flour (since I have yet to find an adequate substitute.)

Another science experiment pie recipe you may enjoy: mock apple pie -- even Janelle might be able to enjoy this one (assuming you're not allergic to the other ingredients.)

I remember that recipe! I never tried it, but it was on boxes of Ritz crackers for decades.

I saw that Bisquick makes a gluten free baking mix, and Impossible pie was originally a Bisquick recipe, I believe.
