Coat baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. Cut in Prune Puree and margarine with pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add the next 3 ingredients; mix just until blended. Stir in pecans. Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead 2 or 3 times. Pat into an 8-inch circle and cut into 12 equal wedges. Place wedges on prepared baking sheet, spacing 2-in. apart. Bake at 400-F for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned and springy to the touch. Serve warm or at room temperature.
