Ingredients

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

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 ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup pecans, finely chopped

1/4 cup apricot, peach or strawberry spreadable fruit preserves

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 325°F.

  2. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 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.

Tip #1

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.
