Peach cinnamon pie with gingerbread crust

Every year my family has a gingerbread house contest but after its done the gingerbread houses sit on the counter-top until it gets old and crusty. Year after year we’ve thrown away good gingerbread. I didn’t want the gingerbread to go to waste like it does every year.
