Dulce De Leche Bars
Why I Love This Recipe
This one is a bit of a cheater because it starts out with pre-made cookie dough but the results are DELICIOUS so if you won't tell, I won't!!
Ingredients You'll Need
2 rolls (16.5 oz each) Pillsbury Create 'n Bake refrigerated sugar cookies
1 3/4 cups quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 bag (14 oz) caramels, unwrapped (I would assume you would know that!)
1/2 cup butter
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
3 tablespoons caramel topping
Heat oven to 350 degrees F
In large bowl, break up 1 roll of cookie dough.
Stir or knead in 3/4 cup of the oats, 1/3 cup of the brown sugar and 1 tsp of the vanilla until well blended.
With floured fingers, press mixture evenly in bottom of ungreased 13x9-inch pan to form crust.
Bake 13 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown.
Meanwhile, in same bowl, break up remaining roll of cookie dough.
Stir or knead in remaining 1 cup oats, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp vanilla until well blended.
In large heavy saucepan, heat caramels, butter and condensed milk over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until caramels are melted and mixture is smooth.
Spread caramel mixture evenly over crust.
Crumble remaining dough mixture evenly over caramel.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or until light golden brown.
Cool 1 hour.
Run knife around sides of pan to loosen bars.
Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
