Arrange pecan halves in an aluminum foil-lined 9x13-inch baking pan. Set aside. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; add sugar, vanilla and salt. Stir one minute, remove from the heat. Continue stirring until sugar dissolves, then pour over pecans, stirring to coat. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes. Stir every 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven and spread the pecans on wax paper to cool. Store in an air-tight container.
