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.

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.

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.

    I was just watching Psych S5E12 “Duel Spires” in which Shawn and Gus go to a Cinnamon Festival. They are served cinnamon pie that looks a lot like pumpkin pie and it made me want to try it.  I’m really excited to find your recipe- it looks just like the one in the show!  I can’t wait to surprise the family with a new dessert this Thanksgiving.  Thank you!

    Can the heavy cream be subed with something else? I’m lactose intolerant.

      Hi Heather!

      You could try thick canned coconut milk. I’ve not made it this way myself, but I think it would work.

    How could you alter this to add pumpkin pie filling to this recipe?

    The recipe sounds delicious. Haven’t tried it yet, but thought you should know that you have a little typo. The word your looking for in step 3 is jiggled. A giggle is a laugh! Though, I’d love to see a giggling pie! Thanks for the recipe – I’m looking forward to trying it.
