Tasty Thursday: The Cookie Edition


This is my most requested Christmas cookie. It's easy to make and very yummy!


Creamy Caramel Cups

Shells
6 oz. of cream cheese, softened
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups flour

Filling
14 oz. bag of caramels
½ cup canned evaporated milk
Topping
½ cup sugar
½ cup Crisco
1/3 cup canned evaporated milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
½ cup chopped nuts

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

2. To prepare the shells, combine cream cheese, butter, and flour. Press into miniature cup pans to form a shell. Bake in preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes until light brown. Remove from pans.

3. To prepare filling, place the caramels and canned milk in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave about 8 to 10 minutes on medium power. Stir. Pour into prepared shells and let cool.

4. To prepare topping, combine sugar, Crisco, canned milk and vanilla in a bowl. Mix until fluffy. I use the whisk on my mixer to make it fluffy. Decorate cups as desired. I prefer a cake decorator. Sprinkle with chopped nuts, if desired.

Enjoy!
