1 egg white, beaten stiff
2 1/2 cups pecan halves
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. good vanilla
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

Beat the brown sugar, salt and vanilla together with the beaten egg white in a medium bowl on medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined, about 1-2 minutes. Add pecans and mix WELL, turning to coat pecans on all sides with the egg white/brown sugar mixture. Spread out on a foil-lined cookie sheet(s), separating with forks into a single layer and as individually as possible. Bake at 250 degrees for 30 minutes, then turn off oven, leaving pecans in oven. Let set in oven for at least 30 minutes, or until crisp and dry. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack in pan. Break apart if necessary and (if there's any left to store!) store in an airtight container.

Enjoy! It's a tradition for me to bring this candy to our church Christmas parties and fellowships. Everyone raves over it, and it's SO easy.

I stopped by to say hello, and found these scrumptious looking things. I don't know if I'll have time to try them for Christmas, but eventually.
