This doesn't look like pie, does it. It's the "for the masses" version. I took one of these cookie sheets of pie to a funeral luncheon and one to my grandson's baptism luncheon. Here's what the regular size looks like.It's delicious. Maybe you should make some. Here is the recipe for a pie size. The recipe for a cookie sheet size--which serves 20 with nice generous squares follows.

BUTTERMILK PIE--This is a very old Bisquick recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray pie plate with vegetable spray.

In a blender, mix the following (this isn't in order of quantities, but the order I put things into the blender):

1 cup buttermilk
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup melted butter, cooled to luke warm
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Bisquick ( I always use pancake mix because I don't ever have Bisquick in the house. I do have a recipe for homemade Bisquick. If anyone wants it leave a message in the comments section and I'll post it.)

Blend one minute. Pour into greased pie plate and bake for 30-35 minutes.

BUTTERMILK PIE FOR THE MASSES--Makes a cookie sheet full--17x12 inches.

This is tricky in a blender. If your blender won't handle this much liquid make halfish of it and pour it into a bowl and then make the remaining halfish, mix them together and pour into greased cookie sheet.

2 2/3 cups buttermilk
8 eggs
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup melted butter--I only use 1/2 cup and it turns out fine
4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups Bisquick--I use pancake mix because I never have Bisquick in the house.

Blend really well in blender--maybe in two batches--and pour into greased cookie sheet. Bake 35 minutes.
