1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
4 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar divided

1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup choppeed pecans

2 tablespoons butter, melted
Unroll 1 piecrust, and place on a lightly floured surface; lightly brush top of crust with water.
Unroll the remaining crust and gently roll or press crusts together. Fit into a 9 inch pieplate; fold edges under and crimp.
Beat cream cheese, 1 egg, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and salt at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour into piecrust. Sprinkle with the chopped pecans.
Stir together corn syrup, melted butter, remaining 3 eggs, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, and remaining 1 tsp. vanilla. Pour filling over pecans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until set. Cool completely.
Yields: 8 servings.
