1/2 cup sugar
1 cup red or white corn syrup
1/8 lb margarine
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pecans, chopped

Mix sugar, syrup and margarine and heat on low heat until sugar is dissolved. Gradually add warm mixture to beaten eggs and vanilla. For tarts, put a few chopped pecans in unbaked tart shells and pour mixture over them until 2/3 full. Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes. For a pie, add pecans last and pour into pastry shell.
