Pecan pie squares recipe: rich, buttery and so irresistible. You can never eat just one. Easier to make, and to serve, than a pecan pie.




  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¾ cup butter (cold, cut into small pieces)


  • 2 cups pecan halves, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (or chopped semisweet chocolate)
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • ¾ cup corn syrup
  • ¼ cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp. flour


  1. Combine flour and salt in a food processor. Add butter and process on/off until it is tiny bits and the dough is just starting to come together.
  2. Pat the dough into bottom of a 13 x 9 inch oiled and parchment lined pan.
  3. Bake crust in 350 ˚ oven for 20 – 25 min until lightly browned. Cool for 30 min. at room temp. Sprinkle with pecans and chocolate.
  4. In a food processor (or with a mixer), cream butter and brown sugar for 3 min. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in corn syrup, molasses, flour and vanilla. Pour over pecans and chocolate.
  5. Spread filling over baked crust and bake 30-35 min or until a knife comes out clean (I can’t imagine this happening!)
  6. Cool for one hour before cutting into squares. Don protective clothing and share with guests or take pan to a quiet place and enjoy.
