Yield 4 dozen (1 3/4-inch) cookies


Ingredients
  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Crisco® Baking Sticks Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening, cut into slices
  • OR 1 cup Crisco® Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup Smucker's® Caramel Flavored Topping
  • 1/2 cup Smucker's® Orchard's Finest® Coastal Valley Peach Apricot Preserves
Preparation Directions
  • Step 1Heat oven to 350°F. Adjust rack to middle position. Coat two cookie sheets lightly with no-stick cooking spray.
  • Step 2Beat brown sugar and shortening in medium bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed for 2 minutes or until fluffy. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add egg yolks, water, vanilla and salt. Beat until well combined. Add flour on low speed until well blended.
  • Step 3Beat egg whites in a shallow bowl until foamy. Place pecans in a separate shallow bowl. Measure about two teaspoons dough for each cookie. Form into balls by rolling between your palms. Dip each dough ball into egg whites, then roll into pecans. Place on prepared cookie sheet. Using the back of a teaspoon or your thumb, make a rounded indentation in the top of each cookie.
  • Step 4Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven. It may be necessary to create the indentation once again with a spoon. Place about 1/2 teaspoon caramel topping into the indentation of each cookie. Then place about 1/2 teaspoon preserves on top of the caramel. Bake an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for several minutes. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
