  • Combine cream cheese, butter, and flour; mix to form a dough. Pinch off 48 equal pieces and press into mini tassie pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool slightly, then carefully remove from the pans as they can break easily.

  • Melt caramels and 1/2 cup evaporated milk in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave on medium-high heat. Stir until creamy. Pour melted caramel into shells and top with frosting.

  • To make the frosting: Beat sugar, 1/3 cup evaporated milk, shortening, and vanilla until light and creamy.
