Why I love this recipe

  • First off, it’s incredibly easy to make. With just a handful of simple ingredients and a few easy steps, you can whip up a mouthwatering cinnamon pie that will have everyone asking for seconds.
  • The combination of cream cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a touch of nutmeg creates a rich, indulgent flavor that’s simply irresistible. Trust me, once you try it, you’ll understand why it’s become a staple in my dessert repertoire.
  • This cinnamon custard pie is an old-fashioned recipe that’s a classic for a reason, just like our cinnamon apple pie with crumb crust, fudge pie, and coconut pie, which all came from my own grandmother’s recipes.

Ingredients

  • cream cheese
  • light brown sugar
  • eggs
  • heavy cream
  • all-purpose flour
  • ground cinnamon
  • vanilla extract
  • salt
  • ground nutmeg
  • premade pie crust or homemade pie crust
  • powdered sugar for dusting, whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream for topping

Step by step

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Cream Cheese and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened cream cheese and light brown sugar using an electric mixer. Beat for about 4 minutes or until the mixture is light and fluffy, being sure to scrape the edges of the bowl as needed.
  3. Incorporate Eggs: Add the eggs to the cream cheese mixture and continue mixing until well combined.
  4. Add Remaining Ingredients: Pour in the heavy cream, flour, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt, and ground nutmeg. Mix until the batter is smooth and all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  5. Prepare Pie Crust: Place the pie dough in a pie dish and gently press it down to form the crust.
  6. Fill Pie Crust: Pour the prepared creamy cinnamon filling into the pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
  7. Bake to Perfection: Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the center is just set. The top should be golden brown and the edges slightly puffed.
  8. Cool and Refrigerate: Allow the pie to cool completely, then refrigerate it to chill. For best results, let it sit at room temperature for about an hour before serving.
  9. Serve and Enjoy: Once chilled, slice the pie into generous portions and serve. For an extra touch of sweetness, dust with powdered sugar or add a dollop of whipped cream on top before serving.

Tips for best results

  • Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl as you mix the ingredients to get every bit of that cinnamon pie filling incorporated.
  • You can make your own pie crust for this recipe or make it by purchased a pre-made pie crust, usually found in the refrigerated biscuit section at the grocery store. You can also use pre-made frozen crusts, just be sure to follow the package instructions for thawing.
  • If the edges of the pie start to brown before the center is set, cover them with aluminum foil to keep from over-browning.

Variations

Want to switch things up? Try adding a sprinkle of toasted pecans or a drizzle of caramel sauce on top for extra flavor and crunch.

You can also experiment with different types of pie crusts, such as a graham cracker crust or chocolate, to customize the recipe to your liking.
