    4. 4
      Add in pecans and continue to stir mixture until the sugar is hot and bubbly (do NOT use a whisk for this part, use a metal spoon).
    5. 5
      On parchment paper, spread out the pecan mixture and let cool completely.
    6. 6
      Break pecans into pieces and place into a food processor. Process until it resembles brown sugar (slightly moist, but not pasty).

    10. 10
      Gently whip the mixture with a whisk until the egg whites no longer feel grainy when rubbed between your fingertips.
    11. 11
      Whip mixture on medium high until bowl is cool to the touch.
    12. 12
      Cut up the cold, but not hard, butter, and slowly add it to the meringue.
