My son Zach got his tonsils out on Wednesday so I’ve been sticking close to home to take care of him. My daughter Courtney came over to visit last night so I made some dinner and these little bars of yummyness! Salted Caramel is my new favorite, right after chocolate of course and these were delicious!
1 pouch Betty Crocker Salted Caramel cookie mix (it says limited edition on the bag so you might not be able to find it anymore) or 1 pouch sugar cookie mix plus ingredients to make cookies (which is 1 egg and 1/2 stick butter)
1/2 cup caramel topping
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 Heat oven to 350. Spray 8″ square pan with cooking spray.
2 Prepare cookie mix as directed on package, reserve 1/4 of the dough and press the remaining 3/4 dough into the bottom of the pan.
3 Bake 20 – 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Let cool 10 minutes.
4 While waiting for it to cool, stir caramel topping and 2 tablespoons flour together. Pour over cooled crust and spread evenly. Sprinkle salt and 1/4 cup of chopped pecans over caramel.
5 Mix remaining dough and remaining pecans together and crumble over mixture in pan.
6 Bake 30 – 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 hour before cutting.
