Candied Ginger Pumpkin Pie
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
What Can I Bring?
Perfect for: Holiday gatherings, breakfast (pie is always good for breakfast).
Make and take: Bake, chill, cover and carry. Since it starts with a store-bought graham cracker crust, there's no pie plate to retrieve.
Sixth ingredient: This recipe is adapted from one that appeared in the November issue of Vegetarian Times, in a collection of desserts made with just five ingredients (not including salt, pepper or water). Great idea, but we thought the final outcome was missing a little something. So we tested it again and added a sixth ingredient: 1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. We think the added complexity is well worth the trouble of digging out a measuring spoon.
Tip: Candied ginger, also called crystallized ginger, is sold in little jars in the spice section
