My late mil used to make these...they are so easy and just taste delish!

Can be frozen, just make sure to put them in something that will keep them flat & seal them well. When you want to serve, put in fridge a while to thaw.

Ingredients

**************CRUST*************

1/3 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 c
butter, melted
1/2 c
chopped nuts
1 c
a-p flour

**************CHEESECAKE LAYER*************

8 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 c
sugar
1
egg
1 Tbsp
bottled lemon juice
2 Tbsp
milk
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix crust ingredients together. Reserve 1 cup for topping. Press remaining mixture in bottom of 8" square pan. Bake 15 minutes. Remove from oven and top with cheesecake mixture.
2
In medium bowl, blend all the cheesecake ingredients together, mixing well (I use my KA hand mixer). Spoon over baked crust, then sprinkle with reserved crust mixture. Bake 15 minutes longer.
3
I have doubled this recipe and baked in a 13"x9"x2" pan without any problem. Crust baking time increases by about 5 minutes, with filling, it's about 10 minutes more in my elec oven...you may have to adjust time in your own oven.
