Coconut Thumbprint Cookies
Jane Eaton, Robbinston, Maine
St. Croix Quilters' Guild Meeting

1 cup margarine
tsp. salt
1 cup confectionary sugar
1 cups flour
1 cup flaked coconut
cup chopped, blanched almonds
1 tsp. almond extract
jelly

Mix ingredients (except jelly).  Chill overnight.  Roll into 1" balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 325 for 8 minutes.  Remove from oven and make a depression ("thumbprint") in the center of each cookie; a metal measuring spoon works well.  Return to oven and bake 15 minutes more or until slightly brown.  Cool and spoon jelly into depression.
