Ingredients:  
1 Cup White Corn Syrup
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Melted Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
3 Eggs
2 Cups Roasted Pecans (See addt'l note)


Directions:
Directions:
Put the butter in the microwave until it is completely melted. During this step, preheat your regular oven to 350. Mix together in the mixing bowl: White Corn Syrup, Brown Sugar, Salt, Melted Butter and Vanilla. Blend until smooth. Add slightly beaten eggs to the batter and mix thoroughly.

Pour batter into a unbaked pie shell. Pour 2 cups of roasted pecans ontop of the batter. Place in oven at 350 for 1 hour and 10 minutes. You may need to place foil around the crust within 30 minutes of baking to avoid burning the crust.

After you put the pie back in the oven, it will need another 30 to 40 minutes. After about 30 minutes (a total of 1 hour in the oven) test the pie to see if it is done. You can test the pie by sticking a knife in the middle. If the knife comes out clean, the pie is done; if it comes out dirty, it needs about 10 more minutes in the oven.

Personal Notes:
Roasted Pecans-Put one cup of pecans in the microwave for one minute. Then take them out and turn them over a few times with your hand and put them back in for another minute. The second time you take them out, if they don't look done, put them in for another minute. Place pecans on cutting board and chop pecans to halves. (this hint keeps the pecans crisp rather than chewy.)
