INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Melt butter completely.

  4. Set remaining 1/3 of crust aside for topping.
  5. While crust is baking, melt butter for filling in a saucepan.
  6. Stir in brown sugar until smooth. (about 1 minute)
  7. Repeat for milk, vanilla, and flour, adding each one separately.
  8. Bring to a slow boil for about 3 minutes until it begins to thicken. Be sure to stir continuously.
  9. Remove from heat.
  10. When crust is cool to the touch, pour caramel filling on it.
  11. Sprinkle remaining crust mixture over top.
  12. Bake at 300ºF for an additional 20 minutes.
  13. Bars will appear a bit runny but will firm up when cool.
