This is one of my personal cheesecake favorites for get togethers. My sister, Barb, gave me this recipe in the early 80's..I have to say I can't get enough of them when I make these bars. Yum...Yum, and Yummy!
Mix brown sugar, flour, walnuts together. Reserve 1/3 cup mix for topping. Set aside. Pat down remaining mixture lightly into an 8 inch square pan that has been greased. Bake 12-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, and sugar till creamy; add remaining ingredients and mix well until smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture over crust then sprinkle the 1/3 cup reserved topping mixture over cheese mixture. Return to oven and bake another 25 minutes.
Remove from oven, cool completely then refrigerate. Once chilled cut into 9 squares...then take and cut through each square like a triangle. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Enjoy!
