Things to know
- Use softened butter to grease your pie plate for this recipe. If you don't have butter, you can use vegetable shortening to prepare your pie plate.
- If you have whole pecans or pecan halves you will want to chop them. If you are using chopped pecans or pecan pieces there is no need to.
- You can make this recipe ahead of time and store it in the fridge overnight.
- There is no need to make your own crust for this recipe, the Bisquick will do the work for you.
- Top this pie with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make it extra special.
Pro Tip: Crack the eggs individually into a small bowl. That way if there's a shell in egg it's much easier to get out!
Variations for Impossible Pecan Pie
- Instead of pecans, you could use chopped walnuts.

- I used dark corn syrup in this recipe, but if you have light corn syrup that can be used as well.

Refrigerate - Cool to room temperature. Store leftover pie in the fridge for up to 5 days. Be sure to wrap it tightly with plastic wrap or foil.
