Diamond Walnut and Blue Cheese Tart With Cranberries

I love blue cheese and cranberries. This is DELICIOUS and I make it every Christmas. Got it from a "Diamond" ad in a 2002 magazine. (To say that the filling of this pie, that has blue cheese, tastes like "stuffing" is beyond me...)

Made this for my best friend's birthday yesterday because she wanted me to bring something along which I could eat. This was easy to convert into gluten free - and it was AWESOME!!! I only got half a piece because everyone wanted to try it - this certainly will be a keeper. Thanks for posting!

Question: The ingredients for the filling call for almonds, but in the recipe steps, Step 3 says, "spoon walnut-berry" mixture into the tart shell. So, am I to use walnuts or almonds in the filling?
