  • Spray 9 by 13 baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Roast the pecans by spreading on a jelly roll pan and roasting in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes. Stir every 5 minutes (after 10 minutes check every 2 minutes so they don't burn!).

  • Reserve one cup of dough for topping.
  • Add lightly beaten egg to remaining dough and mix well.

  • In microwave, warm the preserves to make them easier to spread.
  • Spread preserves over the dough in the pan.
  • Crumble the reserved dough over the jam (the dough will be soft).
  • Cook for 30 - 35 minutes until golden brown around edges.
  • Let cool before cutting.
