Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ oatmeal cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown ale beer
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits
  • 1/4 cup caramel topping
  • 1 tablespoon brown ale beer

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. Place cookie mix in bowl; cut in butter using pastry blender or fork until mixture is crumbly. Reserve 1 1/2 cups mixture for topping. Press remaining mixture in bottom of pan. Bake 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugars, flour, 1/3 cup beer, the vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
  • 3
    Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over partially baked cookie base. Sprinkle with reserved crumb topping, pecans and toffee bits.
  • 4
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows. To serve, stir together caramel topping and 1 tablespoon beer; drizzle over top of each bar. Store covered in refrigerator.

  • Cold butter is needed to create a "just right" streusel and crust texture.
  • Line the baking pan with foil for quick pan cleanup.
