How to Make Bisquick Pie Crust

This is one of our 3 Ingredient Pie Crust recipes but I wanted to go more in depth with it because we use this Bisquick pie crust mix so often. Filled with apple pie, meat or quiche inside is a delicious way to make dinner or dessert for your family.

Bisquick Pie Crust

Pie crust with pancake mix is amazing and so easy to do. You can make it a bit sweeter with a little bit of sugar or more savory with a pinch of salt. The base to this Bisquick recipe is only 3 items you already have at home probably. Just blend, roll, press into your pan and you’re set to fill. (post may contain affiliate links present)

For a sweeter taste you can just add 1 tbsp of your favorite sugar type into the dry mix, like our Shortbread Pie Crust. You can even incorporate a sugar free Splenda alternative if you wanted! Just a dab will do to transform it all. The base is just 1 cup baking mix + ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened + 2 tablespoons boiling water. Literally, all you need. A vegan plant based dairy free butter alternative is fine too.

Yes of course you can make a Pot Pie Crust and use it for sweet fillings as well as savory ones but it is better if you just tweak it a bit to go one way or the other. If taking to a get together, add into a disposable pan so you can leave it there when you leave. For the holidays there are some pretty porcelain versions you can find as well.

How to Make Bisquick Meat Pie Crust

We use this one all the time to make our Simple Chicken Pot Pie if there is leftover poultry from the night before I don’t want to throw away. You can do the same thing really with any meat you have on hand that is precooked and can be diced up real quick. Add frozen veggies, a gravy or condensed soup and bake it up for dinner.

If you wanted to make a Double Crust Pot Pie then you would of course double the ingredients below. What is listed below would be enough for the bottom. If you want to enclose the whole thing with a top crust then make another one. Then you can slice for lattice work or lay on top and just vent with a few vents in the very top.

  • 1 c bisquick
  • 1/4 c butter unsalted and softened (not melted butter)
  • 2 tbsp water boiling or very hot
  • Pie pan is a must too unless you are pushing into muffin tin holes and making mini versions

If I am making my Chicken Pot Pie Recipe with Cream of Chicken Soup sometimes I will add a pinch of garlic powder into the simple ingredient mix because I think that goes well with this dish. A fun dinner dish that my girls actually ask for quite often.

How to Make Bisquick Pie Crust for Quiche

I do have a specific Quiche Crust here but this one is easier if you just want to have one box in your pantry to make all of the things. You are going to bake this with your whisked eggs and other ingredient filling so you won’t need to bake it ahead of time, also known as to blind bake or to par-bake pie crust which you would do if filling with something cold.

  • In a bowl combine butter and dry baking mix.
  • Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend so you have a coarse mixture a bit like sand consistency.
  • Add boiling water and integrate just until you get a ball of dough. You don’t want to over-mix as that will make it tough.
  • Lightly flour cutting board or countertop and flatten dough with palms or rolling pin in a circle so it will fill your pan.
  • Make sure it is same thickness all the way across, but again handle as little as possible for best results.
  • Lay inside pie plate and gently press to mold into pan and fill with your favorite filling. If you want to add a cold filling this is how to Blind Bake.

Once baked that way, cool, and add cold filling at that time. If baking filling with the crust, leave crust unbaked, pour in filling and follow your directions in regards to how long and at what temp to bake your pie to a golden brown at.

If you are using this to make something else savory you may like our Cornmeal Pizza Crust to use sometime instead. Serve with a green salad or veggies on the side and enjoy dinner as a family.

Can you substitute Bisquick for Flour?

Yes and no. This boxed baking mix does have dried shortening in it as well as salt and baking powder incorporated into it so there would need to be a bit of adjusting. You could make your own at home if you didn’t have the yellow box in your pantry.

How do you make Bisquick

1 cup all purpose flour, 1.5 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 2 Tbsp. butter or shortening like Crisco = is how to make 1 cup of Bisquick yourself. Then you can create all sorts of things way beyond pancakes and this idea here.

No Butter Pie Crust

As I stated you could use the Country Crock vegan based butter alternative for this too, which we’ve done for Ham Pot Pie. Just keep it cold and just set on the counter for about an hour to soften but not melted.

So whether you want to make a blueberry treat or Steak Pot Pie this will get you started and save you a ton of time. Jump to recipe and let us know what you think.
