Sift the first four ingredients into a bowl and cut in the margarine.
When mixture looks like coarse oatmeal, drizzle with egg yolks slightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water.
Stir with a fork.
Press particles together and, if too dry, add additional teaspoons water.
Wrap about 1/3 the dough in wax paper.
Press remaining dough into bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of an oiled 8-inch-square pan.
Bake at 350F about 15 minutes or until edges color.
Remove from oven.
Beat egg whites and salt together until stiff, then beat in the brown sugar.
Add vanilla and coconut.
Spread jam over partially baked pastry.
Spread with coconut mixture.
Roll out remaining pastry and cut in 1/4-inch strips.
Set strips on top in a lattice arrangement.
Press down lightly.
Return to the oven and bake 30 to 35 minutes longer.
Cool completely.
