Impossibly Easy Almond Joy Pie

Hey you guys! Guess who made a pie? This girl! I am a self-titled NON-baker! No desserts come from my kitchen. But, I did it… and I’m not ashamed to say that I used an easy-peasy recipe and took some help from the store, because, well, I made a pie!! I used a Betty Crocker recipe, which I got from my cousin who said that everyone loved it when she made it. I love coconut so this was a no-brainer for me, and by adding a few more ingredients I made it taste like my favorite candy bar.

Impossibly Easy Almond Joy Pie
by Sarah Gillespy
adapted from Betty Crocker’s Impossibly Easy Coconut Pie

1/2 cup Bisquick mix
2 cups milk (We only buy 2% and it worked fine.)
1 cup shredded coconut (The recipe didn’t say sweetened or not, but I went to 3 stores and all they had was sweetened so that is what I used.)

1/2 cup sugar (The recipe called for ¾ of a cup, but I felt that was a lot, so I cut it.)
1/4cup butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
1/2 Hershey bar, chopped
handful of almonds, chopped

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Pour mixture into a greased pie plate. Bake about an hour or until nicely browned and when you insert a knife into the center it comes out clean. Let cool for a bit and eat and enjoy!
