  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread coconut and walnuts onto a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until coconut and walnuts are toasted, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven and finely chop walnuts.
  3. Combine raspberry jam, coconut, and walnuts together in a bowl.
  4. Divide cookie dough in half. Roll 1/2 the dough into a 12x7-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Spread half the jam mixture over rolled dough to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Carefully roll dough, jelly roll-style, around filling; pinch side seam to seal roll, keeping ends open. Repeat with remaining dough and jam mixture. Wrap each dough roll in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove plastic wrap from rolls.
  6. Cut dough into 1/4-inch thick slices and arrange on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until edges just begin to brown, 7 to 9 minutes. Cool cookies for 1 minute on the baking sheet and transfer to wire racks.
  8. Whisk confectioners' sugar, water, and almond extract together in a bowl until smooth; drizzle over warm cookies.
