  • sugar cookie mix (Betty Crocker brand preferred)
  • 12 cup butter or 12 cup margarine, cold
  • 12 cup pecans, chopped

  • Filling

  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

Press remaining mixture in bottom of pan. Bake 10 minutes and remove to a rack to cool slightly.

  4. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over partially baked cookie base. Sprinkle with reserved crumb topping, pecans and toffee bits.
  5. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 30 minutes. Refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled. Drizzle with remaining 1/4 cup caramel topping. For bars, cut into 9 rows by 4 rows. Store covered in refrigerator until serving.
