These elegant filled cookies are some of my favorites for Christmastime. Try them for a bridal shower, spring brunch or ladies' luncheon, too.

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves

"These cookies are lovely. The preserves add the right amount of sweetness. Will definitely make these again. Just a heads up: a 3" square might hold the filling better, my kept oozing off the sides. Parchment paper REALLY helps if the filling gets baked onto baking sheet. I would like to try doubling the walnuts. My first batch didn't stay overlapped and sealed, so I made sure of more overlap and they all stayed sealed."
