  • Scant 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • Good 1/3 cup jam or jelly for the filling

Coconut mixture

  • 5 egg whites

  1. Quickly mix the ingredients for the dough and roll it out on a greased baking plate to a square, approximately 12 inches square.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes until almost done.
  3. Stir together the ingredients for the coconut mixture in a saucepan. Simmer while stirring until thick but still runny. The batter must not boil!
  4. Spread jam or jelly of your choice over the warm dough plate, then drop the coconut mixture on top and even it out.
