Preheat oven to 350°. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) in a large mixing bowl until foamy; add salt. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold in vanilla, chocolate morsels, and pecans.
Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto aluminum foil-lined cookie sheets. Place in oven, and immediately turn off heat. Do not open oven door for at least 12 hours. Gently remove cookies from aluminum foil, and store in an airtight container.
My Mom made these for years - they bring back childhood memories! So very easy to make ... and then forget till the next morning (usually NOT 12 hours as noted in the recipe). Everyone who has tried them love them! My grandson and I plan to make these tonight before bed.
