In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in 3/4 cup butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. press the mixture evenly into a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until lightly browned; set aside.


In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, and 1/2 cup butter. Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.


Place the eggs in a medium bowl. Gradually stir about 1/2 cup of the hot mixture into eggs. Return all mixture to saucepan. Stir in pecans and vanilla. Pour nut mixture over baked crust.
