Impossibly Easy French Apple Pie

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make streusel by stirring 1/2 cup baking mix, brown sugar, nuts, and the cold butter together until crumbly.
  2. Heat oven to 325ºF.
  3. Grease 9-inch pie plate.
  4. Stir together apples, cinnamon and nutmeg; place in pie plate.
  5. Stir remaining ingredients except streusel until blended.
  6. Pour into pie plate on top of the apple mixture.
  7. Sprinkle with streusel.
  8. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  9. Cool 5 minutes.
  10. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.

I am so glad to see this recipe is already posted! I just love making things with Bisquick. I actually saw this on a website this morning called and I'm not surprised that it's already on Zaar! Thanks again.

This cake was good on the top part, but the bottom was not good. The bisquick and apples separated and the Bisquick layer formed a rather unappetizing pudding like texture, which really didn't have a flavour. I ended up scraping out the bisquick part and just eating the apples and the top.

Definitly easy and tasty. but the bottom crust does come out a little odd...not bad, but odd. Mine seemed like a cobbler/strudel hybrid. Despite the oddness, I will definitly be making this again.
