Frozen Cranberry Cream Pie

This is a recipe my mother has been making for quite a few years. I don't know, where she found it. But, I fell in love with this pie! My husband isn't into cranberries, so it isn't his kind of pie. So, that leaves more for me, right? ha The original has whipping cream, sugar, & vanilla. But, Mom used thawed whipped topping for convenience, instead. Take your pick.
