How to Make Cinnamon Pie
Preheat your oven to 325°F and lightly spray a 9-inch shallow pie pan or a 9-inch tart pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Make the Graham Cracker Crust
Mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter in a large bowl or bowl of a food processor. Add the crust to the pan and use the flat side of a glass or measuring cup to pack it down tightly and evenly into the bottom and around the sides.
Place the pan on a large rimmed baking sheet, which makes transferring in and out of the oven easier, and prebake the crust for 10 minutes while you make the filling.
Make the Filling
In a large bowl, use a hand-held mixer to beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy with no lumps. Add the sweetened condensed milk and ground cinnamon and mix until smooth. Make sure there aren't any lumps of cream cheese at this point.
Switch to a whisk to mix the remaining ingredients in by hand. Mix until just combined, and don't overmix. Before adding the filling into the prebaked crust, tap the bowl on your counter a few times to release any trapped air bubbles. You should see bubbles come to the surface and pop. Pour the filling over the pre-baked graham cracker crust.
Bake: Bake the pie for 30-35 minutes, or until the filling is mostly set and just slightly wobbly in the center.
Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely at room temperature or in the fridge before slicing and serving.
Top with whipped cream when ready to serve, enjoy!
