9 inch unbaked pie crust

1 cup light corn syrup

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3 eggs, slightly beaten

1/3 cup butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 heaping cup pecan halves

Instructions: Heat oven to 350*.

In a large bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, salt and vanilla; mix well.

Pour into unbaked pie crust; sprinkle with pecan halves.

Bake at 350* for 45 to 50 minutes or until center is set. (Toothpick inserted in center will come out clean when pie is done.)

If the crust or pie appears to be getting too brown, cover with foil for the remaining baking time.




Background: Note: The original recipe stated that the pie should be baked 45 to 50 minutes in a preheated 350* gas oven. If an electric oven is used, it may be necessary to add 15 to 20 minutes to the baking time. (Begin testing the pie with the toothpick aftr 45 minutes.)
