Ingredients
  

  • 1 Pillsbury or homemade pie crust
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon divided
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted

For the Syrup:

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

For the Filling:

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla divided
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

For the Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • dash of cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare thawed or homemade pie crust in pie dish and set aside. Stir cinnamon, sugar and butter and brush all over crust.
  • To prepare the syrup: Place brown sugar, water, corn syrup and butter in saucepan.  Over medium heat, bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved (about 2 minutes).  Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and set aside.
  • For the filling: Beat butter in a stand mixer until creamy (about 1 minute).  Add in sugar, powdered sugar, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, followed by milk until combined.  Lastly, gently beat in the flour.
  • Pour filling into pie crust.  Top with syrup.  Add another sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar if you'd like an extra sweet kick. ;)
  • Cover pie with a folded piece of foil (it will look like a little tent) and bake for 25 minutes.  Remove foil and cook for another 20 minutes.  Check for doneness with a toothpick inserted in the center that comes out clean.  Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about an hour before adding glaze.
  • To make glaze: combine all glaze ingredients until smooth.  Add more milk for a more runny consistency or more sugar for a thicker glaze.  Once pie is cooled, drizzle over the top and enjoy!
