I had fun making this pie. It was in the refrigerator setting up in no time and everybody loved it. The gingersnap crust really compliments the lemon flavor.
I loved this! Everyone who tried it really enjoyed it. I tried it without the gingerbread cookies and you definately need they for the crust. If you like lemons, you will love this pie!
