Ingredients:  
1 lb butter, softened
1 c sugar
1 1/2 c powdered sugar
2 TBSP vanilla
4 c flour
1 - 14oz bag of caramels, unwrapped (40-50 caramels)
1/3 c heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 325. In a medium or large bowl, combine the softened butter and both sugars. Using a hand mixer on medium low, beat together until creamy. Add 2 TBSP vanilla and beat until combined. Add the flour to the butter mixture and beat on low until the dough is fully mixed, it will be crumbly and soft. Press half the dough into a 9x13 pan to form a bottom crust. Cover remaining dough and chill. Bake crust for about 20-25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let crust cool 15 minutes.
While crust is cooling, mix caramels, heavy whipping cream and 1 tsp vanilla together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 1 minute intervals until creamy and no bits remain. Spread over cooled crust. Sprinkle coarse sea salt over caramel. Crumble reserved crust evenly over caramel. Return to the oven and bake until the topping is firm and light golden brown, about 30 minutes. Cool before cutting into squares.
