1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 cup sugar

3 tablespoons orange juice

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


2/3 cup apricot all-fruit spread

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Divide dough in half. Roll each half between 2 sheets of waxed paper into 12x9-inch rectangle. Spread apricot fruit spread over dough; sprinkle with pecans. Roll up, jelly-roll fashion, starting with 12-inch side. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.

    Heat oven to 375°F.
