Mix sugar, syrup and margarine and heat on low heat until sugar is dissolved. Gradually add warm mixture to beaten eggs and vanilla. For tarts, put a few chopped pecans in unbaked tart shells and pour mixture over them until 2/3 full. Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes. For a pie, add pecans last and pour into pastry shell. Bake as usual. Freezes well.
