I had an actress I worked with for a while who LOVES snickerdoodles, and who wouldn’t? They’re very tasty. I was stumbling through the internet and found a recipe for snickerdoodle pie a while ago, and just had a chance to bake it. My roommates and I are waiting for it to come out of the oven in about an hour. Here’s the recipe for you!
1 cup plus 1 Tbsp. sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
4 large egg yolks
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 prepared graham cracker crust
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Set a rack in lower third of oven. Line a baking sheet with foil and set it on oven rack. In a small bowl, stir together cinnamon and 1 Tbsp. sugar. In a large bowl, whisk together melted butter, buttermilk, egg yolks, flour, vanilla, salt and remaining 1 cup sugar. Pour into pie crust. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar over custard.
- Set pie on preheated baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Without opening oven, reduce temperature to 325ºF and bake until pie is set, puffed and golden, about 20 minutes longer. Let cool on a wire rack, then serve, or cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate to serve cold.
