Preheat oven to 375 and place frozen, unbaked pie shell on baking sheet.
Mix sugar, butter, and salt until no lumps remain. Add eggs and mix well, scraping down sides and bottom of pan to get sugar fully incorporated. Add half & half and vanilla and mix until filling is smooth.
Immediately pour filling into pie crust. Sprinkle top with cinnamon sugar.
Bake pie for 40-45 minutes until crust is brown and sides of pie are set. The center of the pie will still be jiggly, but will set up as it cools. Let pie cool completely and store in refrigerator.
