      Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease cookie sheets with butter flavored
   shortening.  Cream the shortening, cream cheese and milk with an electric
   mixer on medium speed until well blended. Beat in the brown sugar. Beat in
   the preserves. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix
   into the creamed mixture.  Stir in the nuts. Drop 2 level tablespoons of
   dough into a mound to form each cookie. Place 2 inches apart on the cookie
   sheets.  Bake for 14 minutes. Cool on the cookie sheets for 1 minute;
   remove to wire racks to cool completely before frosting. For the frosting,
   combine the powdered sugar, preserves and shortening in a small bowl. Beat
   with an electric mixer until well blended. Frost the cooled cookies;
   sprinkle with coconut, if desired. Penny Halsey (ATBN65B). Variation: Try
   peach or pineapple preserves in place of apricot.
