Step 1:

Place parchment paper on a 9×9 inch baking tray and sprinkle the bottom with chopped pecans. Spread it evenly then set it aside.

Step 2:

In a heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, add sugar, water, salt, and butter. Bring it to a boil while stirring frequently.

Step 3:

Once boiling, stir it occasionally until the mixture reaches 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 4:

Remove the mixture from heat and gently stir in the vanilla, then immediately pour it over the chopped pecans on the tray. Spread it to the edges and into a flat layer using a spatula. Set it aside to let it cool for about 2 minutes.
