2.75 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup finely chopped pecans (praline or normal)
1 cup melted butter
Step 1. Chop up pecans ahead of time. Make them pretty small like below. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2. Combine pecans, sugar and flour in a large mixing bowl.
Step. 3 Melt butter and add to mixture with egg.
Step. 4 Mix all ingredients together till it forms a crumbly, but moist dough that sticks together.
Step 5. Press mixture to bottom of greased baking dish. A casserole dish works great for this. Set aside 1.5 cups of the mixture to crumble on top.
Step 6. Add jam and spread to edges. Leave about 1/3 inch on the sides, the jam will spread to it.
Step. 7 Crumble 1/2 cup on top cover all jam and the sides.
Step 8. Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until crumbs are golden brown. Check around 30 minutes to make sure it isn’t burning. After it’s done take out and let it sit for 3 hours and then cut in pan and enjoy.
