Ok folks, the big 2-6 is coming at me in just a few days! And I have 8 pies to go… So here we go! This isn’t the prettiest pie I’ve made but it is so different than anything else I’ve made I couldn’t pass it up. Basically, this is a giant cookie in a pie crust. Have I sold you yet? Oooey gooey, cinnamon-sugar topped, snickerdoodle goodness.
It definitely takes some dedication to make it all happen (it’s a multi-step process) but it was worth it in the end! I found this recipe on Pinterest and I’m a big fan of the fact that it doesn’t need any crazy ingredients. We had everything on hand to pull it off! First up, you’ll need a crust, then make your cinnamon syrup, then make your cookie batter.
You’ll need one 9 inch pie crust. Pick your favorite but I went with a quick crust on this one!
1. In a bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of raw sugar and 1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon to sprinkle on various layers as you go.
2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and brush the bottom of the crust. Sprinkle with some of your cinnamon sugar and then set the crust in the fridge to firm up.
1/2 c packed brown sugar
3 tbsp water
2 tsp light corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
Combine the first four ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Allow the syrup to boil for two minutes, remove from heat, and stir in the vanilla. Set aside.
1/4 c butter softened
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c powdered sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c milk
1 1/4 c flour
In your stand mixer, beat softened butter for 30 seconds. Beat in sugar, powdered sugar, salt, and cream of tartar until well combined. Beat in an egg and vanilla. Beat in milk and then flour.
Spread your batter into your prepared crust and slowly pour your syrup over the batter. Top with remaining cinnamon-sugar. It looks a little funny before you bake it…
don’t worry it’ll look like a giant delicious cookie when you’re done!
Cover with foil and bake pie at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 20 more minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
