Cranberry Cottage Cheese Pie

The different flavors in this pie compliment one another 100%. I do not know a lot about cranberries, therefore this was a try or die... I made something else using dried cranberries and had almost a full bag left - what to do ?  

I took a chance on one of my "bright light ideas" and struck gold !  This pie does not set fully as it is very creamy - that was okay by me, cut and serve carefully and just enjoy ...

Tangerine (Naartjie) Juice was used in the sauce - I wanted Orange Juice, but had none and an almost full bottle of Tangerine, which ended up being used instead.

What will you taste .. Ginger / Tangerine / Cranberry  and a lot of sweetness !

Cranberry Cottage Cheese Pie

1 packet (200g) Ginger biscuits, crumbled finely
6 TB Butter, melted
1 can (397g) Sweetened Condensed Milk
250g Cottage Cheese, plain and smooth
1/2 cup Lemon juice
1 cup Fresh Cream, beaten stiff
1 cup Dried Cranberries, divided
1 cup Tangerine (Naartjie) Juice
3 TB Sugar
1 t Corn Flour, {mixed with 1 TB of the Tangerine Juice}

1.) Mix the Ginger biscuit crumbs with the melted Butter - press into a pie dish's sides and bottom - chill.
2.) Beat together the Condensed Milk, Cottage Cheese and Lemon juice.
3.) Gently fold in the beaten Fresh Cream to the Cottage Cheese mixture - add 3/4 cup of the Cranberries and stir through - pour into the crust and chill at least 4 hours.
4.) Over medium heat, simmer the Tangerine Juice (keep 1 TB aside to mix with the Corn Flour), Sugar and the remaining 1/4 cup dried Cranberries for 8 - 10 minutes - add the Corn Flour mixed with the 1 TB juice - simmer and stir until the sauce has thickened - remove from heat and cool completely.

Once the sauce has cooled, pour over the pie and serve !
