    9. 9
      Fill the tarts 1/2 full with the melted filling.

      Beat 1/2 cup margarine, 1/2 cup Crisco and 1/2 cup sugar until very smooth and fluffy.

      Add 1 small can evaporated milk and 1 T Kahula, or more to taste.
    12. 12
      Beat at least 10-15 minutes or until the consistancy of a light fluffy whipped topping.

      I made these two weeks ago for a party...everyone gave this recipe 5 stars! They are so good! The caramel and cookie and then the whipped topping, what's not to like! Thanks for a great recipe!

      I have been making these for several years, using this recipe. I just never wrote my raving review. I cannot express how good these are. I used to buy these off a baker, and I got tired of the high price I was charged. I found this recipe, and they were better than the bakery's. I don't use the Kahlua, and they turn out fantastic without it. Thanks for the keeper!
