Fanny farmer's pecan pie recipe?

1 pie crust (9 inch)
3 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar (I prefer dark brown) can use either
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup corn syrup (I prefer dark) can use either
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup pecans, broken (get some pecan halves too, for decorative purposes on top)
Whipped topping (my addition)
Preheat oven to 450F. Mix all ingredients and pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake for 10 minutes, and reduce temperature to 350F, bake another 35 minutes.
Let cool:
suggestion: Serve with Whipped topping, sprinkle with pecan halves if desired
