Method

20 minutes
 
Set oven on 200 ºC.
Beat together butter and 50g sugar until light. Beat in the egg yolks.
Stir in the flour and add enough cold water to make a soft dough.
Roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface until it is about 5mm thick. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out rounds and line greased patty pans with the dough.

Filling
Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
Add remaining sugar, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
Beat until thick and glossy, then fold in the coconut.
Place about half a teaspoonful of apricot jam into the centre of each pastry base. Top with coconut mixture and bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until pastry is crisp and golden.
