The pumpkin pie that makes its own crust is probably a Bisquick Impossible Pie recipe and there are many. Most of the Impossible Pies are pretty good. My family especially likes the Impossible Taco Pie. Here's one recipe for Impossible pumpkin pie.

Impossible Pumpkin Pie Recipe

2 eggs
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup Biscuit or other baking mix
2 tablespoons butter melted
2-1/2 cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Mix to combine until smooth the eggs, milk, pumpkin, sugar, biscuit mix, butter, allspice
and vanilla. Pour into a greased 9-in. pie plate (dish will be full).
Bake at 350į for 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Serve with whipped cream or other topping if desired.
Makes 8 servings.
