   Recipe by: Patty Ann Spalding Preparation Time: 0:30
      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.
