Do I really need to go any further than the picture?

Okay, Fine…

Before Christmas Kayte, Phyl, Abby, Renee, and I were baking cookies and this was one we made.

    Caramel Crumb Bars

These cookies begin with a sweet crust pressed into a 9″ x 13″ pan.

While the crust is chilling you crumble the remaining dough for the topping and set aside.

The filling is made with butter, corn syrup, dark brown sugar, and sweetened condensed milk. Mix these really LOW calorie ingredients together, simmer, boil, thicken, and cool. When cooled the filling is poured into the chilled crust, covered with the crumble topping and baked at 350° until the filling is bubbling, a deep caramel color and the dout is baked through. About 30 minutes.

What you end up with is…..

.. whole lot of caramely deliciousness!!!

I may have over baked these a tad, the crust was a little brown, but the caramel was deep, dark, and delicious.
