Combine dates, pecans, and 1/2 cup sugar in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
Beat egg whites (at room temperature) in a medium mixing bowl until soft peaks form. Add remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Fold in reserved date mixture.
Drop date mixture by heaping teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 200° for 1 hour. Cool slightly on cookie sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
