4 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecan halves
1 9-inch pie crust, unbaked

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare pie shell.

Beat the eggs lightly and add the sugar, salt, corn syrup, cooled butter and vanilla; stir until mixed well. Spread the pecan halves on the bottom and cover with the filling. Place in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 350 degrees F. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the mixture is firm in the center. Cool before serving.
