Abby's Famous Pecan Pie

by Marie, taken from the Dear Abby column

1 9 inch unbaked pie crust
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 tsp salt
1 heaping cup pecan halves
1 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare pie crust. In large bowl, combine corn syrup, sugar, eggs, butter, salt and vanilla; mix well. Pour filling into pie crust; sprinkle with pecan halves.
Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until center is set (toothpick inserted will come out clean). Cool on wire rack
*If pie or crust appears to be getting too brown, cover with foil for remaining baking time.
