Snickerdoodle Pie

What could be better than snickerdoodles and pie?  A Snickerdoodle pie!  I found it here and made this over the weekend.  It turned out absolutely delicious!  The flavor was a little more like a cinnamon roll than a snickerdoodle but great nonetheless.  Here's the recipe for the other snickerdoodle lovers out there.  Yumm!!!

Snickerdoodle Pie

Single crust Pie crust (I used one of the rolled kind you find in the biscuit section of the supermarket) OR make your own..which ever you prefer.

2 Tbsp melted butter
Cinnamon sugar - 2Tbsp. sugar + 2 tsp. cinnamon combined and divided in half

Prepare pie crust.  Spray a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray and line with pie crust.  Brush 2 Tbsp melted butter over crust and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Preheat oven to 350°.

Syrup Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3 Tbsp water
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla

In saucepan combine butter, brown sugar, water, cinnamon and corn syrup.  Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil gently for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 tsp. vanilla. Set aside.

Filling Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tarter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups flour

In mixing bowl beat remaining 1/4 cup butter with mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Beat in granulated sugar, powdered sugar, baking powder, salt, and cream of tartar until well combined. Beat in egg and the other teaspoon of vanilla. Gradually beat in milk until combined. Beat in flour. Spread evenly in crust-lined pie plate.

Slowly pour syrup over the filling in pie plate.  Sprinkle top with remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture (1 Tbsp + 1 tsp).  Cover edges of pie with foil.  Bake pie 20 minutes; carefully remove foil.  Bake about 20 minutes more or until top is puffed and golden brown, and a toothpick inserted 2" from edge comes out clean. Do not over cook!

Cream Cheese Glaze
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 to 1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons  milk
1 tsp vanilla

In bowl mix all ingredients together.  (You can adjust amounts based on the consistency you prefer)

When pie is cooled drizzle you glaze over the top, or if you prefer leave the glaze off and serve with vanilla ice cream.
