Recipe by litldarlin

This is one of my Grandmothers pies that she made for us when we were very young. She would use all of her leftovers to make this pie. It was always a treat to have this pie. It is very simple to make and you can use either a graham cracker crust or a butter crust. Make sure you use only "WHOLE MILK" for this pie. I think this Cinnamon pie is one of My grandmother's experiments, But this is the one dessert I remember watching her make as a young child in her kitchen. I never forgot the taste. My cousin Matt asked me If I was going to make a Cinnamon Pie for the Family Reunion. I actually made 3 Cinnamon pies,1 pie just for Matt and the rest for everyone else. They went faster then the rest of the desserts.
