    Baked Cheesecake Squares

    1/3 cup shortening
    1/3 cup packed brown sugar
    1 cup flour
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts
    6 1/2 tbsp. cream cheese
    1 egg
    2 tbsp. milk
    1/4 cup white sugar
    1/2 tsp. vanilla
    1 tbsp. lemon juice

    Preheat oven to 350. Grease 8' sq. baking pan. For crust, cream shortening & brown sugar, gradually blend in flour & nuts. Mixture will be crumbly. Set aside one cup crust mixture. Press rest into bottom of pan. Bake for 15 mins. To make filling, beat cream cheese & sugar. Add egg, milk, lemon juice & vanilla till well blended. Spread filling over warm crust. Sprinkle top with remaining crust mixture. Bake for another 25-30 mins. Let cool on wire rack before cutting. As you can see, this recipe does not have alot of cream cheese in it, so it is not as rich tasting as some other recipes, good for anyone who prefers a lighter version of anything cheesecake-y.
