Pecan Chewies make the perfect sweet treat or dessert. My Mama made these as we were growing up and they were always a family favorite. If you have a pecan lover, they will absolutely adore these! And thankfully, they really couldn’t be much easier to make. Pecan Chewies make a great make-ahead bar recipe since they can be baked, cooled and cut into bars, and then easily transported to tailgates, picnics, reunions and more!

Pecan Chewies Recipe

Pecan Chewies are a traditional Southern treat with a slight chew as their name implies! They are made with melted butter, sugar and brown sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, self-rising flour and chopped pecans. They come together so quickly and easily and bake into a delicious, easy to enjoy treat. The melted butter and brown sugar give these Pecan Chewies a butterscotch or toffee flavor that is out of this world delicious and makes them an all-time favorite for pecan lovers, too!

I’ve included step-by-step photographs and instructions in making these delicious bars. I think you will absolutely love them.

For this recipe, you’ll need

  • butter, melted
  • granulated sugar
  • brown sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • large eggs
  • self-rising flour
  • chopped pecans

To start, preheat the oven to 300º F. Butter a 9 x 13 baking dish. I also like to line my baking dish with parchment paper large at the edges that I can easily lift the Pecan Chewies from the baking dish to finish cooling and to cut into bars. If you use the parchment, you’ll also want to butter the parchment paper.

Add your melted butter, granulated and brown sugars, and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl.

Place into the oven and bake until the Pecan Chewies are light brown and they do not move when the baking pan is moved on the oven rack, about 45 minutes.

Allow to cool in the pan. Alternately, if you used the parchment paper lining in your baking dish, allow them to cool for about 5 minutes in the pan and then carefully lift them out of the baking dish using the extended edges of the parchment paper. Place them onto a wire rack and let them cool completely.

      1. Hi Denise,
        You can use any other nut if you don’t like pecans. If you don’t like nuts, you can omit them and replace with chocolate chips. Hope you enjoy!

  1. I read the post, drooled over the photo, and got busy baking. These are so good; thanks for the great recipe!

  2. Thank You for giving step by step instructions along with the pictures! I’m more of a visual type of person so comparing what yours looked like and what was in front of me was tremendously helpful! Oh and not having a bunch of stuff to wash after was a huge plus!! My husband LOVES this recipe! I am happy to say this is now my new favorite bake ahead go to dessert!!!
