"Delicious!! A hit at all of my holiday parties. I'll be careful next time not to fill the cups completely with the caramel mixture... leave some room for the frosting or else they'll leak all over the..." See more place!"
"I was making these for my friend Tania who loves caramel. I won't be sharing these because I did not care for this recipe. READ the recipe: the "crust' is cream cheese, flour and butter... no sugar..." See more (made me doubtful...and I was right). The crust is tasteless. Its not flaky, its crumby and crumbling. This might be better with a traditional pie crust. The filling is caramel and evaporated milk - cant argue there, its good. But the worst part... is the frosting. I have NO problem with fatty or shortening buttercream and what not. But I did not care for this icing. Again, look at the recipe - its only half a cup of sugar with a cup of shortening. A traditional buttercream would have a shortening to sugar ratio of 1 to 4 ... not 2 to1. The icing is tasteless and greasy. I dumped an extra cup of sugar in it, and it still just tasted like shortening with a gross oily mouth feel. I'm an experienced baker - I did not care for this recipe. Sorry Tania."
"These are fantastic. I have made these and eveyone loves the. You have to press the dough high and over the edge a little to get enough space. A little caramel to fill the dip is fine. The frostin..." See moreg when whipped up completes the taste. If it is too fatty - just eat one but it completes the cookie and is better as a whole."
