Southern Pecan Pie

This is another one of those "doesn't-everybody-have-this-recipe" recipes.
Granted, they are all very similar, and probably most folks who are looking
for a pecan pie recipe won't have any trouble finding one. HOWEVER,
I found out about a secret!  Read on...

 3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup dark corn syrup, such as Karo
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups pecan halves (my theory is -
if you're going to bake a pecan pie,
bake a PECAN pie...why skimp?)
one unbaked 9-inch pastry shell

 Stir together eggs, corn syrup, sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Add the pecans. Pour mixture into pastry shell. Here's the secret: Bake 5 minutes
at 450 degrees F. Then lower the temperature to 275 degrees, open the
oven door and leave it open for 5 minutes. Close the oven door and bake
the pie for 2 hours. This method produces the wonderful chewy texture
that's so hard to yo' mama used to bake!

Where did I get this "secret"? I wish I could remember. I know I found
it in an excellent southern community cookbook, but I can't remember
which one and haven't been able to locate it so far. (My cookbook col-
lection is strewn over two continents, so please give me a break here!)
If you're out there, please stand up and be counted!
