A Perfect Cinnamon Pie Recipe for the holidays with a creamy spiced filling and golden crust!
However this year I wanted to try a new (at least new to me) pie variety.
I was recently listening to an old Paul Simon album and stopped in my tracked with a heard the line “She was baking a Cinnamon Pie” in the song Hurricane Eye.
Cinnamon Pie? Never heard of it.
Don’t get me wrong… I’ve eaten more than my fair share of cinnamon rolls, cinnamon cookies, cinnamon cake, cinnamon cornbread, and cinnamon bread over the years. Yet had never ever tried Cinnamon Pie.
Paul Simon, challenge accepted!
After hunting down multiple recipes I noticed quite a large discrepancy in what is considered a Cinnamon Pie. Some were gooey and gelatinous. Some were like a cinnamon cake baked inside a pie crust. Some were double crusted. Some were chunky.
There didn’t seem to be a set standard.
The recipes that stood out to me as the most appealing were the smooth creamy Cinnamon Pie recipes.
So I made notes on the the best elements of each recipe, and set off the create my variation of Cinnamon Pie.
Today’s recipe is my version of Cinnamon Pie. The filling is light and silky with a strong cinnamon essence and a touch of nutmeg to offset the flavor.
It’s divine. Truly.
It’s the perfect finish to a holiday family feast.
Spoon a dollop of whipped cream over the top and you have a new annual tradition. Cinnamon Pie is a treat your family will ask for again again!
