  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Press dough into bottom and sides of two 8-inch pie plates to form crusts.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

  7. Return saucepan to medium heat and stir milk mixture until thick, 5 to 8 minutes.
  8. Divide milk mixture evenly between the cooled crusts. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Cool until filling is set, about 30 minutes.
