In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and coconut extract.

In separate bowl, whisk flour, coconut, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture to combine. Divide dough in half; wrap each and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Between waxed paper, roll out each half into 10- x 8-inch (25 x 20 cm) rectangle. Spread each with half of the jam, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) border along 1 long edge. Using waxed paper to help and starting at opposite long edge, roll up dough toward border, sealing seam. Wrap each log and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.

Coating: Whisk egg white with 1 tsp (5 mL) water; brush over logs. Spread coconut on waxed paper; roll logs in coconut to coat.

Cut into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices; bake on parchment paper–lined baking sheets in 325°F (160°C) oven until light golden, about 12 minutes. Let cool on pans on racks.
