Prepare a large jelly roll pan by lining it with tin foil and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine the sugar and salt in a bowl and set aside.
In a separate, large bowl, combine the egg white and the liqueur stirring well with a whisk until mixture is slightly foamy.
Add the pecans, and stir well.
Add sugar and salt mixture to large bowl and stir all ingredients well to coat evenly.
Spread mixture onto prepared jelly roll pan in a single layer.
Bake at 325°F for 25-30 minutes or until pecans are lightly toasted and browned, stirring every 10 minutes.
It will look like the coating is coming off (but it's not).
Stir from the outside in to keep pecans on the edges from burning, and watch closely since sugar burns easily.
While pecans are baking, line a separate baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or wax paper and set aside.
Once pecans are done, remove from oven, transfer them IMMEDIATELY to wax paper or a silicone baking mat to cool.
Pecans keep for two weeks in an airtight container or in freezer up to three months.

Yes! These store wonderfully so are perfect for making ahead. Like I’ve said, I like to make a big batch all at once so that I can divide them up into gift bags for gifts. Store at room temperature for up to a week (if they last that long!)
