Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a 9-inch pie plate. Chop cranberries and nuts together and place in the bottom of the pie plate. Sprinkle with ¼ cup sugar. Beat eggs. Add ¾ cup sugar and remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour batter over cranberries. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
