Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; add vanilla and gradually add sugar. Toss in the pecans and mix gently with a wooden spoon or spatula until they are coated thoroughly.
Melt butter and pour on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
Spread the pecans out evenly over the baking sheet and cook for 40 minutes, turning them every 10 minutes with a spatula – do not skip this step! (They will look like a gloppy mess at first, but don’t worry! Keep turning as instructed and all will be good.)
Remove from oven and cool for about 2 minutes
Place powdered sugar and cinnamon in a large resealable plastic bag; add in the pecans, seal and shake until coated.
Best served warm, but absolutely delicious even after a few weeks!
To store, keep in a container with a tightly fitted lid.
