  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Combine eggs, flour, syrup, sugar, vanilla, sour cream, salt and nutmeg in the bowl of an electric mixer, beat well. Stir in walnuts.
  3. Lower heat to 350F. Pour filling into piecrust. Place filled crust on a cookie sheet (to catch spills).
  4. Bake about 40 to 45 minutes, or until the top is a deep, shiny golden brown and the filling is set around the edges (it should wobble a bit in the middle, though).
