Recipe Tips

Fresh ginger has an intense, somewhat lemony flavor. Choose plump, firm ginger from the produce section. Grate fresh ginger with the smallest grater you have.

This is an incredibly delicious and easy pie since you only have to do the bottom crust, I used the Land O Lakes recipe for the crust which was simple to make. It's got that great crunchy topping and is amazing with vanilla ice cream. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out perfect, I would highly recommend.

How should this recipe be stored? I'd like to make it two-days before Thanksgiving and then take it to my family's house for the holiday. Should I store this in the refrigerator after baking it?
