Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
In a bowl, mix the biscuit crumbs, cinnamon and butter together.
Press half the mixture into the base of a greased shallow pie dish.
In a glass jug, beat together the egg, sugar, flour and cornflour until thick and pale yellow.
Heat the milk over low heat on the stove. Gradually whisk the egg mixture into the milk mixture. Cook over medium heat for about five minutes, whisking constantly until the mixture has thickened. Cool for a few minutes and stir in the vanilla.
Fold the fruit into the custard mixture and pour into the pie dish.
Cover with the rest of the crumb mixture and bake for 25 minutes or until the top is browned.
Let it cool for 15 minutes before serving.
