As promised here is the recipe for my grandmother's Texas Pecan Pie. This recipe goes all the way back to my great grandmother who was from Dallas, TX.
2/3 cups sugar
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/3 C butter
1 C. Syrup (1/2 dark and 1/2 white Karo syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat the eggs well, add sugar gradually, 1/3 tsp. Salt, melted butter, add syrup and vanilla. Do not mix hard for a long time or mixture will become foamy. Pour onto unbaked pie crust. Sprinkle with whole pecans (about 1 C.) Bake at 375 degrees until nicely set and browned. The pie will be a little jiggly in the middle when you take it out.
