I haven't tried this out yet, but the ginger in it sounds really good. I found the recipe on OrganicValley.com. The site says "The name says it all! Very rich - for a lighter dessert, prepare without the streusel topping." (I'm guessing on the prep time.)

Directions

  1. For crust: Place ginger in processor and process until minced.
  2. Add flour, sugar, allspice and salt; process to combine.
  3. Using on/off turns, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  4. Mix yolk and 2 tablespoons water in small bowl.
  5. Add yolk mixture to flour and butter mixture; process just until mixture forms moist clumps.
  6. (If dough is too dry, blend in more water by teaspoonfuls.) Gather dough into ball; flatten into disk.
  7. Wrap in plastic; chill 1 hour.
  8. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled. Soften dough slightly at room temperature before rolling.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
  9. Roll out dough on floured surface to 12-inch-diameter round.
  10. Transfer dough to 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish.
  11. Trim overhang to 1 inch.
  12. Fold edges under crust.
  13. Crimp decoratively, forming high-standing rim (about 1/2 inch above rim of dish).
  14. Freeze crust for 15 minutes.
  15. Line crust with foil and then fill with pie weights (dried beans work well too).
  16. Bake crust 10 minutes.
  17. Remove foil and beans and bake until crust is set and pale golden, about 10 minutes.
  18. Transfer crust to rack; cool completely.
  19. For filling: Whisk all ingredients in large bowl until combined.
  20. Pour into pie crust.
  21. Bake until skin begins to form on filling and filling begins to set, about 50 minutes.
  22. Remove from oven, and let pie stand 10 minutes to set slightly.
  23. Maintain oven temperature.
  24. Meanwhile, prepare topping: Mix first 5 ingredients in medium bowl.
  25. Rub in butter with fingertips until mixture begins to form small clumps.
  26. Sprinkle topping over pie.
  27. Bake until pie is set and streusel is golden brown, about 25 minutes.
  28. Transfer to rack and cool completely.
