"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
1 Buttermilk Pie Crust Dough disk (see recipe)
1/2 cup each of coarsely chopped walnuts, pecan, almonds
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted, room temperature

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F. Roll out pie crust disk on lightly floured surface to 13-inch-diameter round (about 1/8 in, thick). Roll dough onto rolling pin and transfer to 9-in glass pie plate. Gently press into place. Trim edges of crust, leaving 3/4-inch overhang. Fold overhang under crust so that crust is flush with edge of pie pan. Crimp edges to make decorative border. Freeze crust until firm, about 15 minutes.
Line pie crust with foil, leaving 3-inch overhang. Fill foil with beans or pie weights. Fold extra foil gently over crust edges. Bake until crust is set, about 15 minutes. Remove foil and beans and continue baking until crust just begins to color, piercing with toothpick if crust bubbles, about 10 minutes. Cool.
Meanwhile, combine chopped walnuts, pecans and almonds on cookie sheet. Toast nuts until just golden, about 10 minutes. Cool.
Whisk brown sugar, light corn syrup, butter, eggs, molasses, vanilla extract and salt to blend in bowl. Stir in toasted nuts and cranberries. Pour filing into prepared crust. Bake until center of filling is set, about 45 minutes. Cool pie completely.
