There are few things in life that cannot be fixed with salted caramel and butter, so as my life has gotten increasingly more crazy and stressful, my desserts have gotten simpler and more butter laden! Starting with these Salted Caramel Butter Bars – they have been known to work miracles!
Butter is comforting, no? Maybe I am secretly French.
The secret to a good life? Beurre. #fact
This recipe is from Cookies & Cups and Shelly uses these to cure bad days too, so I am not alone here!
These Salted Caramel Butter Bars look complicated but they are actually super easy because the bottom crust and the top crumble are the same shortbread dough. Easy peasey.
They came together in just under an hour, but 50 minutes of that time was spent impatiently waiting for the bars to cook!
I also baked mine a bit longer than the directions so my bottom crust and top crumble were a little crunchy, which added some texture to the bars but that is completely unnecessary; they would be just as delicious as soft and chewy bars.
Do you know what else makes everything better? Shark Week. #obsessed
So throw some Salted Caramel Butter Bars in the oven and cozy up on the couch to watch Shark Week reruns!
And there is my recipe for happiness. You’re welcome.
