¾ cup + 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened and divided
½ cup sugar
1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
18 caramel candies ( individually wrapped)
2 Tbsp milk
¼ cup light brown sugar
2 Eggs, large
½ tsp. vanilla extract

5. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt. Gradually mix in the caramel mixture, then stir in pecans. Pour filling over warm crust.

6. Bake 25-30 minutes, until filling is set. Allow to cool completely, then refrigerate 1-4 hours.

7. Sprinkle with flaky salt and serve. Refrigerate leftovers up to 3 days.
