    1. HEAT oven to 350°F. Adjust rack to middle position. Coat two baking sheets lightly with no-stick cooking spray.
    2. BEAT brown sugar and shortening in medium bowl with mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes or until fluffy. Add egg yolks, water, vanilla and salt. Beat until well combined. Add flour on low speed until well blended.
    3. BEAT egg whites in shallow bowl until foamy. Place pecans in 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 baking sheet. Using back of teaspoon or your thumb, make rounded indentation in top of each cookie.
    4. BAKE 10 minutes. Remove from oven. It may be necessary to create the indentation again with spoon. Place about 1/2 teaspoon caramel topping into indentation of each cookie. Then place about 1/2 teaspoon preserves on top of caramel. Bake 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.

    A little bit of a process but I think that was because of the lack of a kitchen mixer. Once it came to adding the peacans, it became much easier. Well worth the effort and even tastes good with walnuts as I ran out of peacans. Overall, DELICIOUS! 😁
