Shortcake Cookies

any flavor jam

Cream shortening, add sugar, then egg yolks. Add flour with baking powder. Form into balls, dip in egg white, and roll in coconut. Flatten slightly. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and make a dent in center of each cookie, and put in a dab of your favorite jam. Finish baking for about 10 more minutes.
