Gooseberry Patch


1 3 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 14 oz. pkg. caramels, unwrapped
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 teaspoons coffee liqueur or brewed coffee
Mocha Frosting:
1 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk, chilled
1 teaspoon coffee liqueur or brewed coffee


Beat cream cheese and butter together until well blended; stir in flour. Form into a ball; chill for one hour to overnight.

Shape into 1/2-inch balls; press each into an ungreased mini muffin cup.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden. Let cool.

Combine caramels and milk in a saucepan over medium heat; stir frequently until melted. Remove from heat; stir in liqueur or coffee.

Spoon filling into baked shells; let cool. Pipe on frosting.

For Mocha Frosting blend shortening and sugar well; add evaporated milk and liqueur or coffee. Beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 7 to 10 minutes
