For the Topping

  • 4 ounces caramel candies (about 14 squares)

Instructions :

For the Cookie Layer

  • Cream the butter, shortening, sour cream, and sugars until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  • Sift together the flour, crumbs, baking soda, and salt and slowly add to the butter mixture. Stir in the candies by hand. Press half the mixture into a greased 8 inch pan.
  • Beat the cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Add the egg, caramel, and flour and beat again. Pour the cheesecake mixture on top of the cookie dough in the pan.
  • Crumble the rest of the cookie dough gently on top of the cheesecake. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Let cool on the counter for 1-2 hours. Refrigerate 4-6 hours.
  • Place the caramels and heavy cream in a small saucepan. Heat and stir until melted and creamy. Drizzle over the top of the cooled bars.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, place the chocolate chips and shortening. Heat for 20 seconds. Stir and repeat until melted and smooth. Place in a bag and cut one corner off. Drizzle over the cookie bars. Let set. Cut into 15 squares. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator
