1/4 cup
powdered sugar
1/4 cup
firmly packed brown sugar
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
vanilla
1 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon
baking powder
1/2 teaspoon

1/4 teaspoon

3/4 cup
pecans, finely chopped
1/4 cup
apricot, peach or strawberry spreadable fruit preserves

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 325°F.
  2. Combine butter, powdered sugar and brown sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  3. Divide dough into thirds; shape each third into 10-inch log. Spread pecans onto waxed paper. Roll each log in pecans. Place logs 4 to 5 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten each into 10x1 1/2-inch rectangle. Make 1/2-inch indentation down center of each using fingers or back of spoon.
  4. Bake 15-17 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 3 minutes on cookie sheet; reinforce indentations using back of spoon. Transfer to cooling rack. Cool completely. Fill each indentation with 1 heaping tablespoon preserves; spread out. Cut each into 12 pieces.

Recipe Tips

Buy ground spices only in quantities you can use within 6 months. Keep spices in containers with tight-fitting lids and store them in a cool, dark place.
