Serves 2 dozen | Prep Time | Cook Time

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup cold butter (no substitutes)
1 cup chopped walnuts
Filling:
2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sliced red and green maraschino cherries (optional)


In a bowl, combine flour and brown sugar; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in walnuts. Reserve 1 cup. Press remaining crumbs onto the bottom of an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in milk, lemon juice and vanilla; pour over crust. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Bake 25-30 minutes longer or until edges are lightly browned and filling is almost set. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Cut into squares. Garnish with cherries if desired. Store in the refrigerator.
