I love cinnamon anything. This is one of my favorite pies and is really easy. You are sure to have all the ingredients in your kitchen too.
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 2 cups sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups water
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Mix all ingredients together with a whisk. Batter will be slightly lumpy.
- Pour into the shell and bake for 45 minutes or until set.
I didn't like the way the pie started out all watery, I wasn't sure if it would set up properly. Then 3/4 of the way through the baking, I noticed that there was this gigantic bubble on one side of the pie. It never went down. Then when it was done baking I tested it with tooth picks and it was still very wet inside the middle where the bubble was. Not sure why that happened. When the pie cooled and I tried to cut it, it was so hard I thought I would never get through cutting the pie up for a slice. Needless to say I was not happy since I was wanting to bring this dessert for our office manager's last day. I am not sure at this point if I will try this recipe again. Melody
This pie has a custardy texture and is serious on the cinnamon. The cinnamon floats to the top and a light colored custard on the bottom makes it a 2 layer pie. I will make it again with whole milk just to experiment. Prebaking the crust would be a good idea.
What a unique & delicious dessert! I'd never heard of cinnamon pie before never mind made it. I was really concerned about the filling - it seemed really watery & I didn't think it was going to fit in my pie pan - but it did - just barely. I baked this for about an hour because I couldn't really tell if it was set or not. I wish I had remembered to take a photo as the pie ends up with 2 layers - a nice creamy custard layer & then a crunchy crust like top. I served with Cool Whip. Someone complained that you could taste the eggs but other than that - rave reviews all around.
