This recipe was originally intended for my first cookbook, Something Sweet. Sadly, under tight deadlines, I didn’t have the time to give this recipe the time and attention it needed. Luckily, I didn’t forget the idea completely, because once I had the time to develop this recipe properly, it became an instant hit and a family favorite!

Ingredients (16)


Cinnamon Filling

Cream Cheese Glaze

Start Cooking

Prepare the Pie

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Prepare the Batter

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, on medium speed, beat together oil and sugars until combined and creamy.

  2. Add eggs, one at a time. Add baking powder, and vanilla, beating well to combine after each addition.

  3. Turn mixer speed to low; gradually add flour. Beat until combined. Set aside.

Prepare the Filling

  1. In a small bowl, combine pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, and oil until smooth. Set aside.

  2. When filling pie crust, be careful to add each layer very gently, so you don’t break the crust. Pour one fourth of the batter into the graham cracker crust; use a flexible spatula to smooth the top. Top with one fourth of the filling. Smooth the top.

  3. Repeat the process, ending with the batter. Note that the batter will be hard to spread; you can make fewer layers so that it is easier to assemble.

  4. Bake for 35–40 minutes, until top is set. It’s meant to be soft in the center, so don’t overbake it.

Prepare the Glaze

  1. Combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth.

  2. For best results, serve warm. Drizzle glaze over each slice just before serving.


This pie freezes well. Wrap tightly before freezing; reheat and glaze just before serving.

    Cinnamon Bun Pie


    Is it possible to replace the ground pecans so that this can become a nut free pie?

    Cinnamon Bun Pie

    pie crust

    I also ended up making it without the pie crust and it was fine. This pie was a big hit with my family. Delicious cinnamon bun flavor.
