Preheat oven to 325

Beat margarine and sugar in large bowl with mixer at medium speed until creamy.

Mix flour, pecans and lemon peel in small bowl; stir into margarine mixture until blended. Cover; refrigerate 2 hours.

Divide dough in half. Roll half the dough on floured surface to 1/8" thickness. With a floured 2-1/2" cookie cutter, cut out circles; using a smaller 1-1/2" circle cutter, cut out centers from half the circles. Repeat with remaining dough, re-rolling scraps as necessary. Place circles on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from sheets; cool on wire rack.

Spread about 1 teaspoon preserves on top of whole cookie; top with cookie with hole in it. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
