Cheese Cake Bars

1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and brown sugars until light and fluffy. Add flour and walnut: mix until crumbly. Set aside 3/4 cup for topping. Press remainder into bottom of a ungreased, 9x13 pan. Bake for 8 minutes (don't over bake) or until golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside.

12 oz. cream cheese, softened
6 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice (fresh is always better)
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg (extra large or two smalls)

In a small bowl, blend sugar and cream cheese until smooth. Add milk, lemon juice, vanilla and eggs. Beat until smooth and creamy. Spread over crust. Sprinkle the top with the reserved crust mixture. Return to oven and bake for 25 minutes. Cool. Cut into bars and refrigerate. Serve with cherry filling, berries or anything else that sounds good. Makes about 30 bars.
