Shortbread and Caramel Brownies

I don't think these need any introduction.
They are simply another tasty treat.

Shortbread and Caramel Brownies

Here's what you'll need:
1 - 9"X13" baking dish, sprayed with a vegetable cooking spray.

The First Layer:

1 C Butter, softened

4 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 C Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 1/3 C Flour

The Second Layer:

1 (10oz.) box of Lorna Doone Shortbread Cookies
6 oz. Cream Cheese, room temperature

1 -(14oz.) bag of Caramel Candies, unwrapped.
2 TBS Heavy Cream

The fourth layer:

1 1/2 C Milk Chocolate Chips
1/2 C Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 TBS Crisco Shortening

Let's put these bars together.

The First Layer:
In a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer:
Beat until creamy smooth.
Beat until well incorporated.

Stir by hand to incorporate.
Do not over mix.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 22 - 25 minutes.
Transfer the pan to a rack and cool completely.

The Second Layer:
In a Food Processor:
Pulse all of the Cookies to a time powder.
Add Cream Cheese and Sugar and pulse just until well combined.
Press evenly over the First Layer.

The Third Layer:
In a Microwave safe bowl:

Microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring until melted.
Evenly pour over the Second Layer.
Refrigerate to cool completely.

The Fourth Layer:
