1/4 c Cornstarch

1/8 t Salt

3 Eggs, separated

3 T Butter or margarine

1/2 t Vanilla extract

1/2 c Chopped pecans

Combine remaining 1/2 C sugar, cornstarch, and salt in a heavy saucepan-gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Beak egg yolks; gradually stir about one-fourth of hot mixture into yolks, and add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Cook stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in the caramelized sugar; cook, stirring constantly, until sugar melts. Remove from heat; stir in butter, vanilla and chopped pecans. Pour into a baked pastry shell.

Spread meringue over hot filling, sealing to edge of pastry. Bake at 400 F for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely
