Ingredients

Crust

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup uncooked old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Filling

1 (14-ounce) package caramels, unwrapped

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

3 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup chopped walnuts

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Spray foil with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine 3/4 cup butter and brown sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Stir in flour, oats, baking soda and salt until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Reserve 1 cup crumb mixture. Press remaining crumb mixture into prepared pan. Bake 8-10 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.

  3. STEP 3

    Place caramels, whipping cream and 3 tablespoons butter into 1-quart nonstick saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 7-8 minutes or until melted and smooth.

  4. STEP 4

    Pour melted caramel mixture over hot, partially baked crust. Sprinkle chocolate chips and walnuts over caramel. Sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Continue baking 13-16 minutes or until topping is golden brown and caramel is bubbly around edges. Cool completely.

I made this cookie for a cookie exchange and my friends loved them. So rich and chewy and they travel well.
