Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Press into a well-greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combine. Spread over crust.

  4. Bake 25-30 minutes at 350 on until filling is set. Drizzle with caramel topping; cool in pan on a wire rack for 1 hour. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Cut into bars.
