  • Combine 1/2 cup margarine and 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl; beat with an electric mixer on low speed until creamy. Add 2 cups flour, 1 egg, baking powder, and salt; mix well until dough comes together.

  • Press dough into bottom and sides of two 8-inch pie plates to form crusts.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

  • Combine milk and 1 teaspoon margarine in a saucepan over medium-low heat; bring to a boil. Remove from heat.

  • Mix 1 1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 2 1/2 teaspoons flour, cornstarch, and vanilla extract into a smooth paste in a bowl. Pour over hot milk in the saucepan.

  • Return saucepan to medium heat and stir milk mixture until thick, 5 to 8 minutes.

  • Divide milk mixture evenly between the cooled crusts. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Cool until filling is set, about 30 minutes.
