Bars, Cheesecake (D, TNT)
Source: Judy Grabhorn "Finalist: Great Holiday Cookie Bakeoff"
Yield: 20

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
8 ounces cream cheese
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cream the butter and brown sugar.

Add the flour, chopped nuts and vanilla to the butter and brown sugar mixture. Set aside one cup of the mixture.

Press the rest into a 9" square pan and bake for 12-15 minutes. Let cool.

Cream the sugar and cream cheese. Add the egg, milk and lemon juice to the sugar and cream cheese mixture. Pour over the cooled crust. Sprinkle the crumbs you had initially set aside over the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cut into squares and serve when cool.

Poster's Notes:
Feedback from Paula: Just wanted to say that I made these yesterday. They are very good with the nuts in the crust (I used pecans), however, next time I will add a little cinnamon to the crust/topping for a little more flavor.
