Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cup grated sweetened coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup guava or other jam
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place the grated coconut in a shallow bowl and set aside. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and oats in a large mixing bowl.

  • In another bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Then beat in the eggs and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and mix just until combined.

  • To shape cookies, roll the batter between your hands to form balls the size of a large walnut. Roll in the grated coconut to coat then place on the cookie sheet and flatten to 2-inch circles with the palm of your hand. With your thumb, make a depression in the center of each and fill with a generous teaspoonful of jam. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer to racks to cool.
