Cream the shortening and brown sugar. Add the egg flour and vanilla.
Pat evenly into cookie sheet (moisten fingertips to prevent sticking).
Bake 12-15 minutes at 350F.
Immediately upon removing from the oven, spread with the jam. Sprinkle with the nuts and coconut then dust with 1 tablespoon confectioner's sugar. Cut into 1x2 1/2-inch strips.
