Annie’s Cookbook Recipes: Impossible Pie


If you missed the intro to this series check it out here.

Great Grandma had ten children.  Phil, Bill, Agnes, Ruth, Linda, Jerry and Joe (twins), and three others whose names I do not remember. They are not talked about much as they died in a terrible kerosene heater accident, the youngest was only a few months old.  Grandma survived a lot.  Great Grandpa had been a farmer, who put down his plow one day and decided to become a preacher.  No training at all he just started preaching. From what I’ve been told he was amazing to listen preach. 

Grandma was good at doing things that seem impossible; like giving birth to twins (while becoming a grandma herself), after losing three kids in a fire, and while taking care of a husband who had lost his legs to diabetes.  She was a fighter, a God fearing mother, sister, friend, and one of the funnies women I’ve ever known (as long as you didn’t interrupt General Hospital).

So today I give you the impossible:


4 eggs

1 1/2 cup sugar

2 cups milk

1 /2 stick melted butter

1/2 cup flour

1 tsp vanilla

17 oz can coconut angel flake (or cellophane package)

Mix sugar and flour, add eggs. add other ingredients and mix.
