Walnut-Cranberry-Whiskey Tart

"The tanginess of the cranberries provides a nice contrast to the sweetness of this nut tart. Frozen cranberries can be used in place of the fresh cranberries. Do not thaw them; simply coarsely chop them and proceed with the recipe. Make-Ahead Tip: Prepare this tart in advance; cover it loosely and store it at room temperature for up to a day."
