    2. Combine eggs whites, salt, vanilla, and cream of tartar in a mixing bowl, whisking thouroughly.  Set aside.
    3. In a pot over medium heat, boil sugar, water, and corn syrup until it reaches 238°F.  Once at temperature, whisk at high speeds into egg white mixture.  Continue to whisk until the mixture is almost cooled, and is stiff and shiny.  Fold prepared candied pecans into meringue.
    4. Prepare a sheet pan with parchment paper and preheat oven to 250°F.  Scoop meringue onto sheet pan and bake for 45 minutes.  Allow to air dry.  If desired, use a kitchen torch to brown edges once dried.  Keep stored in airtight container.
