Macaroon Butter Cookies

Warning: you could gain weight just from LOOKING at these cookies. They are super rich, but entirely delicious. Next time I will make them just a tad smaller.
1 c. butter
1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
Beat butter still fluffy. Add powdered sugar, salt and vanilla. Mix well, then add flour a little at a time. Cover and chill dough for 8 hours. Shape in to small balls and place on cookie sheet. Press finger in to the top of each ball making an indentation. Bake at 350 for about 12-15 minutes. Spoon filling in to the top of each cookie while warm. Cool, then drizzle with chocolate frosting.
6 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. flour
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 c. sweetened coconut
Mix cream cheese and powdered sugar. stir in flour, add rest of ingredients and mix well.
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. water
1 c. powdered sugar
Microwave the chips, butter and water for about one minute. Stir until smooth and melted. Stir in powdered sugar. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
