Turtle Shortbread Bars


The classic turtle flavours of chocolate, caramel and pecans on a shortbread cookie crust.

-- Serves
1 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 squares (1 ounce each) semi-sweet chocolate, melted, cooled 5 minutes
2 cups flour
1/4 cup Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
1 package (14 ounces) caramels
2 tablespoons light cream
6 ounces (1-1/2 cups) pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Mix butter, brown sugar and vanilla thoroughly using an electric mixer. Beat in melted chocolate. Gradually blend in flour and corn starch.

Press dough into 13 x 9-inch ungreased baking pan.

Bake for 20 minutes. While bars are baking, unwrap caramels; place in a small saucepan with the cream. Heat just until melted and creamy, stirring constantly. Remove bars from oven and spread caramel topping over all. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Return to oven for an additional 15 to 20 minutes. Cool; cut into bars.
