Preheat oven to 325.
Grease a 9 inch cooking pan and line with parchment paper. Coat parchment paper with cooking spray.
Cream together cream cheese and sugar until mixed through. Beat in 1 egg and vanilla extract until fully incorporated. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Mix in melted butter, brown sugar, and 2 eggs. Stir until fully combined.
Spread cookie mix into baking pan. Spoon cheesecake batter on top. Using a knife, swirl to create a marbled effect.
For the caramel sauce (store bought is fine too!):
In a medium sauce pan, melt sugar stirring continuously.
Once sugar turns amber, add butter and whisk vigorously. It will bubble, but that is normal!
Remove pan from heat and whisk in cream. Once cream has been added, stir in vanilla extract and sea salt. Let sit for 15-20 minutes, then drizzle on top of cheesecake cookie bars.
Bake in oven for 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in pan. Drizzle with remaining caramel sauce, divide into bars and enjoy!
