Southern Pecan Pie

This is my husband's favorite dessert. I tried many times to make it, but the texture just wasn't right. I found an old recipe of my grandmothers which adjusted the oven times during baking. That seemed to do the trick and the texture is perfect!

3 eggs
2 T butter
1 C Karo syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup pecans
1 tsp vanilla
frozen pie shell

Beat eggs. Mix sugar with eggs, then add syrup and vanilla. Melt butter and add to mixture. Stir in pecans. Pour into unbaked pie shell and place in preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 350 and bake for 35 minutes.
