Cranberry lime pie with ginger bread crust

It took me forever to find this recipe. I was having such a hard time getting inspired and I knew if I looked hard enough I would find the “needle in the haystack”. The cranberry pie came out amazing and I will be making two for Christmas this year. I cut down the sugar in this recipe so if you like it super sweet feel free to add more sugar. The combinations of flavors really packs a punch! For the original recipe please visit Sue’s blog.
