1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust 1 cup light corn syrup 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar 3 eggs, slightly beaten 1/3 cup butter, melted 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup pecan halves
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
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. (Toothpick inserted in center will come out clean when pie is done.) If crust or pie appears to be getting brown, cover with foil for the remaining baking time. Remove from oven and cool. You can top it with a bit of whipped cream, but even plain, nothing tops this!
I made this recipe after I could not find my usual one. It NEVER SET! I baked and baked and baked it. It stayed runny in the middle. When I let it cool, more runny than when I put it in the oven!

Found this in a newspaper several years ago. It is the ONLY pecan pie my husband wants me make! Big hit for holiday dessert buffets.
