Nothing says comfort food like Snickerdoodle Pie. A cinnamon sugar syrup bakes into the bottom of this soft, cake-like pie based off of a favorite cookie recipe.
Christmas is gone, but my craving for Snickerdoodles isn’t. It never goes away. All I need is a glance at those gooey-cinnamony wonders and I about fall over. When I made the Potato Chip Chocolate Pie, I wondered if I could create other cookie pies. Like my favorite…..Snickerdoodles.
Anyone who knows me would know what I did. I just had to have it. Like I told you before, my Snickerdoodle craving never ends! I thought about trying to create my own recipe, then found out that someone over at Mountain Mama Cooks had already created a Snickerdoodle Pie that looked heavenly.
This pie has the gooeyness, the zingy flavor, and the cinnamon and sugar melt-in-your-mouth goodness that I love in Snickerdoodles. I get hungry just thinking about it!
It tastes like the cookie.
It smells like the cookie.
It practically is the cookie. In pie form.
See that layer of cinnamon & sugar there right above the crust?
That’s the syrup you pour over the top of this pie.
The syrup is what makes this so good in my opinion. It soaks down into the crust, makes your pie gooey and full of cinnamon flavor.
Definitely add this recipe to your “To Make” list.
- 1 pie pastry shell
- 2 teaspoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup butter melted
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the pie shell in a 9 inch pan. Spread the melted butter on the crust inside the pan. Then sprinkle on 1 tsp. each of cinnamon and sugar.
- For the syrup, simply mix in the butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, water, and corn syrup in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and let it boil gently for 2 minutes, stirring gently until the sugar is dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and add 1 teaspoon vanilla to the syrup.
- For the batter, mix the butter until light and fluffy in your stand mixer. Add in the the sugar, powdered sugar, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar, egg, vanilla, milk, and flour as listed.
- Mix just until combined. Spread evenly on your pie crust.
- Slowly pour on the syrup over the dough, and cover the edges of the pie in foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Then take the foil off, and bake for the remaining 20 minutes. Serve with ice cream or just enjoy it as is!
