From the kitchen of Connie Putano.  These pan cookies
start with a walnut crust.  The filling is simply a jar of apple
jelly & a jar of lekvar.  Reserved crust is then latticed on top.  
Dough:
Beat:
2 sticks butter
2 c confectioner sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Add:
1 tsp baking powder
2 c flour
Add:
2 c ground walnuts
Reserve an orange sized portion of dough for lattice.  Cover
& place in refrigerator.

Spread remaining dough into a 16x12 raised cookie sheet.

Filling:
1 12 oz  jar apple jelly
1 17 oz jar lekvar

Spread filling over dough.
The dough is very sticky & hard to work with.  To make
lattice work, use 2 spoons to drop small mounds of reserved
dough over filling.

Bake @ 350, 15-20 minutes.
Cool.
Cut into bars.
Sprinkle with
confectioner sugar before serving.
