Active Time:  15 Minutes
Total Time:  1 Hour 15 Minutes
  Makes 6 servings
2 cups orange marmalade
For Dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons vegetable shortening or margarine
3 to 4 tablespoons ice water
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Confectioners' sugar for dusting
Place the marmalade in a strainer over a bowl. Press the marmalade with a spoon so the moisture starts to drain out. Let the mixture drain for 30 minutes.

TO PREPARE DOUGH: In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in the shortening, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. With a fork, stir in the ice water, tablespoon by tablespoon, until a dough forms. You may need to add more or less water depending on the humidity.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a baking sheet and set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough 1/8- to 1/4-inch thick. Cut it into 3-inch squares. Place about 2 teaspoons of the drained marmalade on each square. Fold the squares in half to form triangles. Seal the edges by crimping with a fork.

Transfer the triangles to the baking sheet. Brush them with a little melted butter. Sprinkle some coconut and granulated sugar on top. Bake for 30 minutes, until lightly golden, then cool briefly on a rack.

Dust the tops with a little confectioners’ sugar.
