Description

A delicious butter shortbread crust with gooey caramel in the inside!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 14 oz bag caramels, unwrapped or 11 oz unwrapped Caramel Bits work great
  • ⅓ cup whipping cream
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp coarse sea salt

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, sugar, and powdered sugar. Add vanilla and beat until combined. Mix in the flour and combine until it forms a soft dough.
  • Press half of the dough in the bottom of a 9x13 dish and place the other half of the dough into the refrigerator. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the oven and melt the caramels, heavy cream and ½ tsp vanilla in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir together until smooth. Pour evenly over the hot crust. Lightly sprinkle the coarse sea salt over the crust. I didnt end up using the entire T, just lightly sprinkle evenly on top. You dont want them too salty. 🙂
  • Take the remaining dough out of the refrigerator and crumble over the top of the caramel. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes until filling is bubbly and the top is firm. Let them cool completely before cutting.
