Total Time: 35 min


  • ½ cup butter
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ¼ cups flour, sifted
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 12 tbsp Welch’s Concord Grape Jam


  1. Preheat oven to 300° F.
  2. Cream the butter using an electric mixer. Gradually add the sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolk (reserving the egg white) and the vanilla.
  3. In a small bowl, sift together the flour and salt. Add the flour mixture gradually to the creamed butter with the electric mixer on low. After the flour has been thoroughly combined, chill the dough for approximately 1 hour.
