1/2 cup brown sugar packed

2 eggs yolks separated from whites

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Beat egg white with fork. Scoop 2 teaspoon sized portions of dough and roll into balls. Dip dough balls into egg whites. Transfer to chopped pecans and coat thoroughly.
