Serve this decadent pie with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate sauce.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Beat eggs slightly with a fork in a medium bowl. Add sugar, salt, corn syrup, butter and vanilla; stir until well blended. Add oats; stir. Add walnuts if desired. Pour into pie crust.
Bake for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350°F and bake for 30 to 35 minutes longer, or until the outer edges of filling are set and the center is slightly soft.
