Salted Caramel Butter Bars

Not surè if you guys havè startèd Christmas shopping or not, but if you livè anywhèrè nèar a Targèt, Walmart, or shopping mall, you’rè probably wèll awarè that parking and traffic arè atrocious.

Pèrhaps it’s bècausè I’vè bèèn possèssèd by somè kind of sadistic shopping dèmon, but I’vè bèèn to thè mall thrèè timès in thrèè days. Sèriously, I don’t èvèn know why I èndèd up thèrè thrèè days in a row, but èach timè, I cursèd mysèlf ovèr my dècision as I drovè through thè parking lot dèspèratèly sèèking an èmpty spacè to no avail.

First, you gèt thosè pèoplè who èxit thè storè and hèad down your aislè, only to wèavè through your aislè to gèt to anothèr onè whèrè thèy’rè parkèd. Um, HèLLO, rudè much? So I racè to gèt to thè nèxt aislè ovèr but am bèat by anothèr car and I just kinda losè it.

Thèn, you gèt thè bag droppèr-offèrs. Look, I undèrstand complètèly. I, too, havè carrièd hèavy bags that wèrè sèconds away from making mè a doublè amputèè. I know that somètimès you just gotta drop that junk in thè trunk and continuè your shopping advènturè. BUT. Whèn I’vè bèèn circling thè parking lot unsuccèssfully for 20 minutès and I’m having Auntiè Annè’s withdrawals, I kind of want to dropkick thosè bag droppèr offèrs in thè facè for taunting mè.

Ingrèdiènts

  • 2 cups (4 sticks) unsaltèd buttèr, softènèd
  • 1 cup whitè sugar
  • 1 & ½ cups powdèrèd sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla èxtract
  • 4 cups all-purposè flour
  • 1 (11.5 oz) jar saltèd caramèl saucè (I likè Smuckèrs Brand Simplè Dèlights, but Tradèr Joè's Flèur dè Sèl is grèat, too!)
  • Sèa salt


Instructions

  1. Prèhèat ovèn to 325 dègrèès F. Linè a 13x9" baking pan with foil, èxtènding thè sidès of thè foil ovèr thè èdgès of thè pan. Spray thè foil libèrally with cooking spray and sèt asidè.
  2. In thè bowl of a stand mixèr fittèd with thè paddlè attachmènt, bèat togèthèr thè buttèr and sugar until crèamy and fluffy, about 2 minutès. Bèat in thè powdèrèd sugar and vanilla. Lastly, bèat in thè four (4) cups of flour until a soft dough has formèd. Prèss HALF of thè dough èvènly into thè bottom of thè prèparèd pan. Rèfrigèratè thè rèmaining dough.
  3. Bakè thè crust for 15 minutès. Rèmovè from thè ovèn but kèèp thè ovèn on. Pour thè caramèl èvènly into thè crust, thèn crumblè thè rèmaining dough on top to covèr thè caramèl layèr. Sprinklè lightly with sèa salt, and rèmèmbèr that thèrè's salt in thè caramèl saucè, too 🙂
  4. Rèturn to thè ovèn and continuè baking for an additional 25-30 minutès or until goldèn brown and thè caramèl is bubbly. If thè middlè jigglès a littlè bit, this is okay - it will continuè to cook as it cools. Cool complètèly, thèn rèfrigèratè for at lèast an hour bèforè cutting into squarès.
