  Categories: Christmas, Bar cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
 
 
       1/2 c  Butter
         1 c  Sugar
         3 c  Flour
         2    Eggs
       1/2 ts Baking Powder
         1 c  Pecans -- finely chopped
       1/2 ts Salt
         1 TB Brandy Or Rum Flavoring
         1    jar Smucker’s® Strawberry
   :          Preserves -- (18 0z. jar)
 
   Oven 350° F.
 
   In large bowl of mixmaster put sugar, butter, eggs and
   flavoring.  Beat until light and fluffy.  Remove from
   mixer and by hand, work in dry ingredients and nuts.
 
   Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan and dust with flour.  Press
   2/3 of dough into pan. Spread the jar of preserves
   over this.  Lattice remaining dough in strips over
   preserves.  Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.  Let
   cool in pan until lukewarm, so that hot preserves
   won't burn you when you cut cookies into squares.
 
   Store in tin box between layers of wax paper.  Can be
   frozen.
 
   TO LATTICE DOUGH:
 
   Roll small pieces between palms or on lightly floured
   surface.  You will have to piece strips.  You can't
   roll them all in one piece.  Keep hands or fingertips
   floured to make strips.
 
   NOTE:
 
   You may substitute Smucker’s® Raspberry Preserves.
   I could never find raspberry preserves around
   Christmas.
