One of the prettiest cookies on my holiday cookie tray and absolutely DELICIOUS! You'll want to hide a few away for yourself, though, because they are always the first to disappear! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! (photo from taste of home)

How to Make Swiss Alps Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
    Shape into 1-in. balls; place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Make a deep indentation in the center of each cookie. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until the edges just start to brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
    For the filling, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla until smooth. Add pecans and coconut. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon into each cookie.
    For topping, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and butter with water; stir until smooth. Stir in sugar. Drizzle over cookies.
