“Bisquick’s Impossible Pies by Betty Crocker have been around for decades,  7 decades now, and they are extremely popular even today.  They “magically” make their own crust.  I have made many, many sweet and savory Betty Crocker Bisquick Impossible Pies and I love them all!   They are so fast and easy to make too.   This cherry one is a favorite of my husband’s.  The combination of the custard, cherries, and streusel filling is a winner!  He loves it!  Try this one, if you haven’t already!   Enjoy!”

Makes: one 10-inch pie


  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup Bisquick baking mix
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • 2 tablespoons butter, firm
  • ½ cup Bisquick baking mix
  • ½ cup  brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 400º. Spray or grease a 10-inch pie plate.
  2. STREUSEL: In a small bowl, mix together the Bisquick baking mix, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Cut in the butter with 2 knives or a pastry blender until there are small pea-sized pieces.  Set aside.
  3. PIE BATTER: In a large bowl with mixer speed on medium, beat together all the pie batter ingredients except the cherry pie filling until well-blended.
  4. Pour the pie batter into the prepared pie plate.
  5. Spoon the cherry pie filling evenly over the top of the batter. ( It will sink; that’s okay.)
  6. Bake for 25 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle the streusel mixture evenly on top of the pie.
  8. Bake about 10 more minutes, or until the streusel is a little browned.
  9. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and store in the refrigerator.
