Perfect Pecan Pie

1 unbaked pie shell (or homemade, if you like the work)
1 Cup White Corn Syrup
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Melted Butter
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
3 Eggs
2 Cups Roasted Pecans

Melt butter completely in microwave. Preheat oven to 350. Mix together in the mixing bowl: 1 Cup White Corn Syrup, 1 Cup Brown Sugar, 1/3 Teaspoon Salt, 1/3 Cup Melted Butter, 1 Teaspoon Vanilla. Beat eggs, and add to your mixture. Pour filling into unbaked pie shell. Sprinkle pecans on top of filling. I like to chop a few of the pecans into smaller pieces first. Bake at 350 for 1 hour 10 minutes. After pie has been in oven about 30 minutes, take out and wrap foil around the edges so the crust doesn't burn. Test the middle with a knife after 1 hour. If it comes out clean, it's done, if it comes out dirty, leave it in for 10-15 more minutes, and test again.
