Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the coconut, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a standing electric mixer fitted with a paddle, or using a hand mixer in a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  3. Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla, scraping the side and bottom of the bowl.
  4. Beat in the dry ingredients at medium-low speed.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350°. Position the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven.
  7. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and bake for 14 minutes. Make a dent in the cookies; fill with jam and bake for about 10 minutes.
  8. Let the cookies cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
