Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F.
Toast the pecans in the oven for 10 minutes, and then roughly chop and set aside.
Combine the sugar, maple syrup, corn syrup and 2 tablespoons water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the pecans and bring back to a boil. Cook until the mixture begins to thicken, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce to medium heat and stir in the cinnamon, vanilla and vanilla bean paste. Let cool.
