I've been making this favourite square recipe for over 25 years.A brown sugar shortbread base with a mouth-watering, deliciously sweet coconut-pecan praline filling. These are always a hit!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together butter, sugar and flour until crumbly.
  2. Press evenly in the bottom of a 9"x9" baking pan.
  3. Bake in pre-heated 375 degree oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and lower temperature to 350 degrees.
  5. Mix filling ingredients until well blended.
  6. Spread over partially baked crust and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
  7. Cool before cutting into squares.

The taste was ok but the bottom stuck badly. I greased the pan since nothing was suggested. I used sweetened flaked coconut and reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup. If I make it again, I would reduce the sugar further to 1/2 cup.

These have got to be one of the best cookies I have ever made. Thanks so much! Already a family classic around here.

These sound delicious! They are very similar to Butter Pecan Pie Squares #29912 except I like your addition of coconut. I'll try these soon.
