3/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla

Toast pecans in microwave for 3 minutes. Stir half way thru and watch closely because they burn easily.

In large bowl of electric mixer, combine ingredients for First Layer; beat on medium speed for 2-3 minutes. Spoon into pie shell. Top with pecans.

In small bowl of electric mixer, combine ingredients for Second Layer. Mix on low speed about 1 minute. Pour over pecans.

Bake for 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center of pie comes out clean.
