3. Meanwhile, for the spice mixture, in a small bowl combine the sugar, rosemary, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper; stir to mix. In an extra-large bowl, combine the melted butter and vanilla. Add the toasted pecans to the bowl with butter and vanilla; toss to coat. remove the pecans from the oven and add them to the butter and vanilla mixture, tossing to coat.
