    Title: Sweetheart Coconut Cookies
    Categories: Cookies, Fruits
    Yield: 42 servings

    1 c Sweetened shredded coconut
    1 c Sugar
    3/4 c Cold butter; diced
    2 1/4 c A-P flour
    2 lg Eggs; lightly beaten
    1/2 ts Vanilla extract

    3/4 c Confectioners' sugar
    1 tb Water
    1/2 ts Vanilla extract
    Coarse white sugar; opt
    1/2 c Seedless raspberry jam

    Place coconut and sugar in a food processor; cover and
    process until coconut is coarsely chopped. In a large
    bowl, cut butter into flour until crumbly. Stir in
    coconut mixture. Stir in eggs and vanilla.

    On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8"
    thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2" heart-shaped cookie cutter
    dipped in flour. Using a 1" heart-shaped cookie cutter,
    cut out the center of half of the cookies. Reroll small
    cutouts if desired.

    Place solid and cutout cookies 1" apart on greased
    baking sheets. Bake @ 375ºF/190ºC for 7-9 minutes or
    until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks.

    In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, water
    and vanilla; brush over warm cookies with cutout
    centers. Immediately sprinkle with coarse white sugar if
    desired. Spread 1/2 teaspoon of jam over the bottom of
    each solid cookie; place cookies with cutout centers
    over jam.
