1. Take a large bowl, add eggs and using a wooden spoon, beat lightly. Add melted butter followed by flour and salt and mix to blend well. Knead on a lightly floured pastry cloth or board for 3 minutes to form a smooth dough. Snip 1 inch pieces off the dough and on the lightly floured pastry cloth or board, roll each of the piece into a 1/8 inch thick and 3 to 3/5 inch diameter circle.
2. Using the fork tines, pierce the dough through the center of the circle and turn the dough so that it is just a quarter’s twist.
3. Take a heavy Dutch oven or a deep fat fryer add 2 inch salad oil and heat to register 360°F on a deep-frying thermometer.
4. Add 3 to 4 twists at a time and fry these till they turn golden brown on either sides. Arrange as a single layer on foil sheets.
5. Take a small saucepan, place on high heat and bring the corn syrup to boil. Lower the heat to minimum and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

SERVING
6. Top twists with the corn syrup, garnish with chopped pecans, allow to set and serve in serving plates.
