How to make:
Preheat over to 325 degrees.
Press uncooked pie crust into a pie dish.
In a mixing bowl, whip butter, and brown sugar together until smooth. In a separate bowl, beat eggs with a fork or wire whisk and then blend into sugar butter mixture. Sift cornstarch and salt into the mixture, and stir in vanilla. Blend in syrup and pecan pieces.
When all ingredients are thoroughly mixed, pour into the pie crust.
