Ingredients:  
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup melted butter
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup (heaping) pecan halfs

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, salt and vanilla; mix well. Pour filling into unbaked pie crust; sprinkle with pecan halves.
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until center is set. If crust or pie appears to be getting too brown, cover with foil for remaining baking time.
(Toothpick inserted into middle will come out clean when pie is "done"). Cool.
Temperature and time is for a gas oven, if an electric oven is used, it may be necessary to add 15 to 20 minutes to the baking time. (Begin testing pie with toothpick after 45 minutes.)
The pie can be topped with a bit of whipped cream or ice cream, but even plain- nothing tops this!
Serves 8 to 10.
