1⁄4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of salt
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
Additional powdered sugar (for dusting hands)

In large bowl combine cream cheese, vanilla, and salt; beat with wooden spoon until smooth. Slowly add 2 cups powdered sugar, stirring until thoroughly blended. Stir in coconut. If dough is too sticky, sprinkle with more powdered sugar, 1 tablespoonful at a time.
