This recipe is from the kitchen of a wonderful lady named Adair Howell.  I
got the recipe because I bought her pie at a pie auction during an
interesting annual festival in Conway, Arkansas--Toad Suck Daze!!

  3 eggs
  2/3 cup sugar
  1/2 tsp salt
  1/3 cup melted butter
  1 cup light corn syrup
  1 cup pecan halves (or a little more than a cup of crushed pecans)
  1 9" pie crust, baked

Beat eggs, sugar, salt, butter, and syrup with rotary beater.  Stir in nuts.
Pour all in crust.  Bake 40-50 minutes at 375 F.  (Note:  It may need to cook
longer--bake until the center doesn't "jiggle".  It is not a bad idea to
cover the pie with aluminum foil to keep the crust from burning--many times
it will brown nicely even with the foil; if not, remove the foil for the last 
5-10 minutes.)
