These cookies have been in my family since the 1960's. I haven't made them in years because I had misplaced the recipe until just last week. They're exactly like little squares of yummy little bites!!!

Your family will thank you for such a sweet treat...Enjoy!!!

  2. Cream butter and brown sugar until creamy. Add flour and walnuts and mix well. Set aside 1 cup of mixture for topping. Press remainder in pan and bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly brown.
  3. Blend cream cheese and white sugar until smooth. Add eggs, sour cream, lemon juice, 1 T. flour, vanilla and lemon extract. Beat well. Spread over bottom crust: sprinkle with reserved topping mixture.
