  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, the salt and 1 teaspoon vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until blended. Gradually beat in 1 to 1 1/4 cups flour until soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart. With thumb or handle of wooden spoon, make indentation in center of each.
  • 3
    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Meanwhile, in small bowl, beat cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and 1 teaspoon vanilla on medium speed until well blended. Stir in walnuts and coconut.
  • 4
    Immediately remove cookies from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon filling into each cookie. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons butter and the water over low heat, stirring occasionally, until chips are melted. Remove from heat. With spoon, beat in 1/2 cup powdered sugar until smooth. Frost cooled cookies. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • To soften butter, microwave unwrapped butter in glass bowl or measuring cup uncovered on High 10 to 20 seconds.
  • Use chopped pecans instead of the walnuts, if you prefer.
