Directions:
Melt butter in a medium heatproof bowl set in a skillet of water maintained just below a simmer. Remove bowl from skillet; mix in sugar and salt with wooden spoon until butter is absorbed. Beat in eggs, then corn syrup and vanilla.

Return bowl to hot water; stir until mixture is shiny and warm to the touch - about 130 degrees. Remove from heat & stir in pecans.Pour into warm pie shell (or if using pre-made crusts, follow directions). Bake at 275 50-60 minutes or until center feels set, yet soft, like gelatin when gently pressed.

Transfer pie to rack, let cool completely. Serve at room temperature. If you want a warm pie, cool the pie thoroughly, then cut and warm it in a 250 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
