BackstoryThis is a favorite with all the men in our family. This was my great grand-mothers recipe that she made often. Simple to make - when cut you will see 3 different layer colors. *Note - due to several reviews I am updating to strongly suggest the following: You need to use at least a 9" deep dish pan for this recipe. A normal 9" will not work. This recipe does not set up if you halve it. The batter is very thin.
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups water
- 1 pastry dough, for single crust pie (either store-bought or your own recipe)

- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Mix first six ingredients together with wire whisk- batter will be slightly lumpy.
- The batter is very thin.
- Pour into unbaked 10” or 11" pie crust. If you do use a 9" make sure it is a deep dish. This fills the shell completely and this is normal.
- Bake approximately 45 minutes or until set. If you see that it is not setting up properly, cover crust will foil or crust protector and bake an additional 10-15 minutes until set.
- Let cool before cutting.
