Amish Crazy Quilt Pie is something you'll occasionally find in an Amish restaurant or, if you are really lucky, an Amish home. I've only one across it once in over 25 years of exploring Amish communities and that was in an Amish bakery in Holmes County, Ohio.
There is also a pie out there called "Impossible Pie" that mirrors the Amish Crazy Quilt Pie fairly closely. Our friend Jessica made this pie and said you like custard you'll love this pie. Jessica jazzed it up a bit with some chocolate chips sprinkled on top, something I'd definitely do!
2 cups milk
3 /4 cups sugar
1 /2 cup flour or Bisquick
1 /4 cup butter or oleo
1 1 /2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup flaked coconut
Combine all ingredients except coconut in blender for 3 minutes at low speed. Pour into greased 9" pie pan. Let stand 5 minutes.
Sprinkle coconut over and bake for 40 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

My mom used to make the "Impossible Pie" all the times. She's been 12 years now. So I would say she probably started making it about 25 years ago. Everyone LOVED (except me, I don't like coconut) it! So easy to make.
Yep, an amazing pie!
