pecan pie

1 9" pie crust
1c light corn syrup
1c packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1/3c butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
pinch salt
1-1 1/2 cups pecan halves, whole if possible rather than chopped

Combine corn syrup, brown sugar, eggs, butter, and vanilla, and salt in a saucepan over VERY low heat. You only have the heat on to combine things. You're not trying to cook anything. Pour filling into pie shell. Top with whole pecan halves. (I make a circular design from the center of the pie to the edges)

Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow to come to nearly room temperature before slicing if you can wait that long.
