 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  C             Butter
    1      C             Sugar
    3      C             Flour
    2                    Eggs
      1/2  Tsp           Baking Powder
    1      C             Pecans -- finely chopped
      1/2  Tsp           Salt
    1      Tbsp          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.
