Bonnie Mortimer's Apple Cups

Second-place winner

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups flour

2 sticks margarine

12 caramels
1 (14-ounce) can condensed milk
2 cups peeled and shredded apples (use all-purpose)
2 eggs
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts

1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine
3/4 cup evaporated milk

To make cups: Cream together cup ingredients and make a dough. Press into tassie pans sprayed with Pam (makes 4 dozen). (We used small muffin pans.)

For the filling: In medium saucepan over low heat, melt caramels with condensed milk, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add apples, eggs, water, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts.

Fill cups and bake 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool.

For frosting: Beat together shortening, vanilla, sugar and margarine, 10 minutes until fluffy, adding milk gradually. Frost when cups are cool.
