the.instructor's picture
  Sweetened shredded dried coconut 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Matzo meal 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Firmly packed light brown sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Margarine/Butter 1⁄4 Pound, cut in to chunks (1/3 Cup)
  Water 1 Tablespoon
  Vanilla 1 Teaspoon
  Jam 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)

In a food processor or with a knife, mince coconut.
In processor or bowl, whirl or rub together coconut, matzo meal, sugar, margarine, water, and vanilla until the crumbly dough sticks together when packed.
Compact dough into tablespoon-size balls.
Place 2 inches apart on 2 ungreased 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.
Flatten balls to about 1 1/2 inches wide.
Bake in a 325° oven until cookies are a rich brown, 25 to 35 minutes.
Transfer to racks.
For jam centers, let cookies cool for about 3 minutes, then press the handle end of a wooden spoon into each cookie, making a depression about 1/4 inch deep.
Fill each hollow with jam (1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon; do not overfill); let cool.
