These are very good. My family enjoys them. They are similar to some other kinds of cookies, but I didn't see exactly the same. I think you'll like these. My family likes them for the surprise preserves inside.

Stir in coconut (dough will be sticky). Set aside 2/3 cup dough; roll remaining dough into 1-in. balls.
  2. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make a 3/8 inch deep indentation in the center of each ball. Fill each with ½ teaspoon jam. Cover jam with a teaspoonful of reserved dough; seal and reshape into a ball. Repeat.
  3. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Yield: about 2 ½ dozen
