Method: Soak cranberries & cashews (separately) for 30 minutes (until cashews are soft) and drain. Place all ingredients for crust in processor or blender -blend well. Place in separate bowl and refrigerate. Repeat process for filling and topping (rinse and towel dry food processor in between blendings). Line crust evenly into a pie pan, pressing down edges to make a flat surface. Pour filling over crust (repeat smoothing process) followed by topping. Put in freezer until hard and serve. For extra flavor and presentation, top with thinly sliced strawberries and fresh mint!

Thanks Stephanie, you mad woman you! :)
