Directions:
Using a mixer,mix together the sugar and eggs; add the margarine. Add the karo syrup, flour, vanilla and salt. Pour into pie shell. Bake 10 minutes at 400 degrees on a cast iron pancake skillet.Then decrease the temp to 350 degrees until it shakes only a little in the center. Nana always covered the pie with another inverted pie pan when it started to brown around the edges to prevent the pecans and edges from burning. It usually takes about 35 minutes total. Let cool on the black iron pancake skillet to prevent it from getting soggy.
