Cinnamon Pie

I had never heard of Cinnamon Pie before, but after hearing it mentioned on a Psych episode, I decided I needed to make it part of my life.

This is an extremely easy recipe, and it turns out sweet but not too strong in any particular flavor. The texture is a cross between smooth custard and pecan pie filling.
Ingredients:
– 3/4 cup white sugar
– 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
– 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
– 2 teaspoons cinnamon
– 1 small pinch nutmeg
– 1 pinch salt
– 1 egg, beaten
– 2 tablespoons melted butter
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 1/2 cup (whole) milk
– 1 10-inch unbaked pie crust
Assemble:
Preheat oven to 400*.
Mix dry ingredients together. Add the egg, butter, vanilla; mix, then add milk.
Pour into unbaked pie crust. Bake at 400* for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350* for 45 more minutes.
Let set and cool completely before serving.
I served it with sweetened condensed milk drizzled over the top, then a bit more cinnamon sprinkled around the edge of the plate. Whipped cream would do nicely as well. The top will be kind of ugly (kind of like a pumpkin pie without the nice orange color), so if you’re self-conscious about appearance, you might want to have something on top. Served a la mode with vanilla bean ice cream would be fantastic as well.
