Yuzu Meringue Pie with Gingersnap Crust

Ok let’s be real, 2020 has been a fairly zero stars experience. I took time away from recipe blogging because it just wasn’t feeling right with everything going on in the world.

But this doesn’t mean I stopped working, and planning, and developing recipes. I really wanted to stretch myself and take the time of isolation to work on recipes that would bring a cool variety to my little collection. So here we have the first Fancy Redneck original dessert (the other dessert recipes were ones I stole from my mom that she made when I was little).

I must say this pie does it all. The yuzu is sharp but adds a floral note that you wouldn’t get in a normal lemon pie, and the gingersnaps add a more savory and almost spicy element to the pie that’s tempered by a super fluffy meringue. I really wanted to write a dessert that would make the tongue dance.

While I’m still not 100% sure if now is the time for blogging I am damn sure it’s always time for a good pie.
