Oh it is almost spring, and we have maple on our brain!
Arrange oven rack in middle position and top with heavy baking sheet. Preheat oven to 425° F.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, maple syrup, butter, vanilla, brown sugar, and salt. Place walnuts in unbaked pie shell, then pour mixture into pie shell over nuts.
Transfer pie to baking sheet and bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350° F and bake until crust is golden and center is just set, 25 to 30 minutes more.
Transfer pie to rack and cool at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.
