Preheat your oven to 250°.
Separate the egg white from the yolk, keeping the whites in the bowl. Use the egg yolk for another purpose or discard. Firmly whisk the egg whites until frothy. Add in 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract and whisk to combine.
To the vanilla egg whites, add the pecan halves. Toss well to coat.
In a separate bowl, combine the sugar with a pinch of fine salt. Transfer the coated pecans to the sugar, toss until coated with sugar.
Spread the nut mixture out into an even layer on a rimmed sheet pan that has been lined with parchment or a silicone mat.
Bake for 30 minutes on the middle rack of your preheated oven, stirring every 10 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before serving or storing in a glass jar or container with a tight fitting lid.
