Old Fashion Pie Recipes: Impossible Coconut, Sugar, and Apple-pecan

Impossible Coconut, Sugar, and Apple-Pecan

Love those old-fashion pies that were always at grandma’s house! One of the best things about visiting my grandmother’s old-fashioned kitchen with it’s huge old metal wood cook stove was the wonderful baked goods sitting on the warmer. Her biscuits and pies were unbeatable.

If you want to revisit grandma’s kitchen in your own house, here are three old recipes to get you going. Dora’s Impossible Coconut Pie bakes into its’ own crust. Mama Harvick’s Sugar Pie is just the plain old sugar pie so famous in the olden days. And the Apple-Pecan Pie blends two of our favorites into one.

Dora’s Impossible Coconut Pie

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oleo
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place all the ingredients in a blender, one at a time. Blend until all mixed together. Pour mixture into a buttered 10-inch pie pan. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour. When done, the crust will be on the bottom.

Apple Pecan Pie

This recipe is from an old newspaper clipping.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup chopped pecans on a unbaked 9-inch pie shell.

Mix together:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 5 to 6 cups apples, peeled, sliced or chopped–your preference

Place mixture over pecans in the pie shell. Dot with 2 tablespoons of butter. Top with the following crumb mixture:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Bake at 425 degrees for 45 minutes or until apples are tender.

Mama Harvick’s Sugar Pie

I received this recipe from a dear friend. It is an old recipe in her family.

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 or 5 thin pats of butter
  • 1 unbaked pie shell

Mix sugar and flour; add milk and vanilla. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake about 40 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Put pats of butter on top of liquid before putting in oven.
