- 1 pinch salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pound pecan halves
- 1/2 cup butter
step 1: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
step 2: Beat egg whites until soft peaks begin to form. Add sugar, salt and vanilla; beat until stiff peaks form and turn glossy. Fold in nuts and coat well with the egg white mixture.
step 3: Melt butter in a 9x13 inch baking pan by placing pan in the oven. Evenly spread coated nuts over melted butter in pan.
