A sweet pie that has held its own as a holiday tradition.
Prepare pastry for a 9-inch pie shell. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Sift together flour and sugar. Beat eggs lightly and add butter, salt, sugar and flour mixture, syrup, nuts, and vanilla. Mix gently but thoroughly and pour into unbaked shell. Bake 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 50 minutes longer. Serve with whipped cream or sour cream.
