Why I Love This Recipe
This 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.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 cups sugar
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.
