Impossibly Easy French Apple Pie

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

I think this is like a cross between a cobbler and a cake, rather than like a pie. I baked mine in a small glass baking dish instead of a pie plate, since it is a lot easier for me to cut squares than pie wedges! (Also I have a cover for my square dish.) For the baking mix, I used half Reduced Fat Bisquick and half Hodgson Mills Whole Wheat Buttermilk baking mix. I also used a bit less sugar in the pie part of the recipe since I thought the streusel topping and apples gave it plenty of sweetness. From Bisquick.

This is one of those Bisquick Impossible pies. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9X12 cake pan. It turned out fine for what it is and tasted even better the next day (should be refrigerated). I'm torn between whether I would make this again or just some version of apple crisp. I had no problem with the apples separating from the custard-like filling and know not to expect much by way of a bottom crust. In any case, I used Royal Gala apples and would prefer Granny Smith or Jonathan, made sure to use plenty. I can't get enough Streusel topping so I would make even more another time!
