Holiday pies are something I look forward to each and every year. Pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie, chocolate pie… I seriously cannot get enough of them!

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.

Making a Perfect Cinnamon Pie Recipe |

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.

How To: Perfect Cinnamon Pie Recipe |

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.

The Best Cinnamon Pie Recipe |

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!

    Omg, I’m so glad I made this! My husband hates pumpkin pie and he loved this. I’m so glad! I used a 1/2 tsp salt and just a pinch of nutmeg, perfect! The pie crust baked so nicely, even on the bottom! Loved this pie, cant wait to make it for Thanksgiving! Thanks for the recipe!

    Hello! This looks delicious. I’m not a big fan of nutmeg. Could you suggest other options to use in place of nutmeg. Thanks!

    Hi Susan.

    I have made this pie twice now and despite being delicious, I keep getting huge fissures right through the pie. The 1st time wasn’t that bad but the second time it ended up like a mosaic, it had lots of huge cracks right down to the pie dish.

    I am not sure what’s going wrong. I’ve also noticed it rises massively whilst in the oven, like a giant soufflé.

    Hopefully someone can give me some help.

    • Sommer Collierposted January 24, 2019 at 8:51 pm Reply

      Hi Ewan!

      Little cracks are to be expected, but not huge cracks. Do you happen to live in a very dry climate? That might be why. If so, place a shallow pan of water on the oven rack below the pie to create some steam in the oven while the pie is baking.

  7. Rosieposted December 13, 2018 at 2:53 pm Reply

    Just wondering what 1/2 cup applesauce added would do to the flavor of this pie?

    I doubled the recipeto make 2 pies but I actually have enough for 3. Can I refrigerate the leftover batter until I can get another pie crust tomorrow or is that a no no? I guess my frozen pie crusts werent that deep…

    Hi Sommer, Your recipes look delicious! I live in the part of Ohio (known to be the lower foothills of the Appalachian Mountains area). I am planning on making this for a Holiday Work Place Dinner (that is 30 minutes away). Could you double this recipe to make two pies? I have a lot of baking to do & was wondering if can I make this a day or two ahead of the party? If, so, how will I store it? Thank you & have a Merry Christmas & New Year!!

    • Sommer Collierposted December 6, 2018 at 6:40 am Reply

      Hi Susan!

      Yes, you can definitely double the recipe and bake the pies a day or two ahead. Keep them refrigerated until you pack them in the car. *Just be sure to cream the cream cheese filling well, and beat on high again after adding the flour to make sure there are no clumps. When you double recipes, sometimes clumping is a bit more of an issue.

      • Susanposted December 16, 2018 at 3:01 pm

        S.O.S.! I “need your help”!

        I am making two (doubling the recipe) for a Late Morning Work Christmas Lunch tomorrow (Monday).

        Last night I done a “test pie”. This morning around 9 a.m. I had my husband try it. He said “It’s terrible! It’s way too hot & salty!”

        I used the amounts for one pie 3 – 1/2 Tbsp of McCormicks Ground Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of BADIA Ground Nutmeg & I used 1 tsp Morton’s Iodized Salt. I only have that & Morton Course Kosher Salt. Do I need to lessen the amount of these ingredients? If so, how muchwould I use? I will be doubling this recipe.

        Thank you!

        Desperately, waiting for you answer! I have to make them by tonight!

      • Susanposted December 19, 2018 at 7:48 am

        Wanted to let you know, my son said “The pie was good. The first bite you could taste the salt, but after that it was ok.” That made me feel better!

        Was it ok to use Morton’s Iodized Salt, instead of Sea Salt? This is an easy, smooth pie. Thanks for sharing it!

    A whole teaspoon of salt?? That seems like a lot for a dessert! Is that the correct amount? …I’m making this for Thanksgiving, but now I’m nervous! 

    • Lydiaposted November 21, 2018 at 7:35 pm Reply

      It does seem like a lot, but many cake recipes I use also call for a teaspoon of salt. It doesn’t make the dessert salty, it just helps to bring out the flavor.

    • Sommer Collierposted November 22, 2018 at 8:47 am Reply

      Hi Tracey,

      1 teaspoon is right. When making something this rich and sweet, you need a little extra salt to balance it. Happy Baking!

  13. Lydiaposted November 21, 2018 at 5:08 pm Reply

    This takes me back to the first thing I ever cooked without a recipe: Cinnamon “Pie.” I was about five or six, and it was definitely a cake, not a pie, but I insisted. However, it wasn’t really a cake either, but more like cinnamon flavored rubber that I forced my siblings to choke down. I look forward to trying this recipe out, and I’m sure it’ll be much better than my version!

    I bought a graham cracker crust to make this today. I notice the recipe suggests an unbaked crust, but…
    Will the graham burn if I bake it this way?

    • Sommer Collierposted November 22, 2018 at 8:52 am Reply

      Hi Mary,

      It should be ok, but maybe wrap the edges of the crust in strips of foil to protect them from turning too dark.

    Would this be better to freeze before baking or after? I’m trying to make all my desserts the day before (or two days) so I can just reheat them while we are eating.

    Do you cook the pie crust first? Or Use raw pie crust. First time making a pie, and I bought store bought pie crust.

      For this pie you pour the filling into an unbaked crust and bake it all at the same time. Happy Baking!

      Scraping the bowl means to use a spatula to separate all the batter from the sides, so the clumps can beat into the mixture evenly. Hope this helps, happy baking!

    I have made this pie several times. The first time it turned out fantastic.  Since then I can’t get it right. It always falls a bit and causes the pie to be dense not fluffy. What am I doing wrong? 

    • Sommer Collierposted May 25, 2018 at 2:39 pm Reply

      Hi Sabrina,

      Hmmm… Instead of asking what you are doing wrong, I might ask myself what I did different the first time. Did you use a different brand of a specific ingredient? Also, I would check your oven temperature with a small oven thermometer that hangs off the rack. Oven thermostats are notorious for drifting off temperature over time. Good luck!

    The flavor of this pie is amazing. It took a very long time to bake (over 50 Min). I am in high altitude and i probably didn’t need all of the batter as it filled the pie pretty high. Next time i make this (there most certainly will be a next time,delicious) i am going to try whipping the heavy cream and folding it in instead so it’s not so wet. This pie will most certainly become a staple in our home!

  65. Joposted December 24, 2016 at 1:08 pm Reply

    The Taste was good. The texture was a little different. It was kind of gritty from the cinnamon & I’m not sure if the pie was possibly under cooked. I wasn’t really sure what I was doing…

    My frozen pie crust was apparently a little small, so I had leftover filling. I put that into 4 little dishes & baked separately. 3 of the 4 didnt want to set up, 1 did. They all came out with a different LOOKING texture from the pie.

    I did not refrigerate the little ones before trying them. Maybe that’s the problem. Saved the pie for Christmas Eve. Hope this is better.

      Hi Cindi,

      I think it would work, but haven’t tried it myself. Personally, I would not prebake the crust. Fill the crust and bake on the lowest oven rack. If it looks like the crust is starting to get too dark, place a piece of foil loosely over the top. Good luck!

    I made this pie last night to bring to an office party at work today. It smelled wonderful while it was baking! It did crack a little in the middle after it cooled, but that could be due to my cooking time/oven. And let’s face it, it tastes the same, cracked or not! It was delicious. I got rave reviews from everyone!

    I admit to using frozen pie crusts, usually deep dish ones. Would this pie fall under the category of cream pie or filled pie, like pumpkin or pecan? There are different baking instructions for the crust depending on the type of pie. Thanks in advance!! : )

        Could bake in ramekins without a crust, and call them “cinnamon custards”. Or “cinnamon chiffons”. Or “crustless cinnamon tarts”.

    Should it be stored in the refridgerator?

      Hi Nicole,

      Yes, chill the pie until an hour or two before serving. :)

    Sounds good.

    With this recipe, should I cook the pie crust first, or pour the filling into the uncooked crust?  Im not much of a baker, and I don’t want to screw it up.  Thanks!

      Hi Serene,

      Just pour the filling into the unbaked crust and bake it together! :)

    OMG, thank you for finding cinnamon pie and taking up this challenge….it does sound divine!

      I read everyone’s comments and some bakers have had “some” mixture leftover. No one mentioned they had enough for another entire pie, which I did. What did I do wrong?

        Hi Debbie,

        It sound like your pie plate is very shallow, instead of deep dish.
