Make sure to follow them step by step and do not skip so you’d be heading to perfection!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
⅔ cup butter
⅔ cup brown sugar
2 8 oz packages cream cheese softened
½ cup white sugar

HOW TO MAKE MOM’S CHEESECAKE COOKIE BARS
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Step 2: Add and combine the flour, walnuts, butter, and brown sugar in a bowl.
Step 3: Then, line with half of the crust mixture a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
Step 4: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 5 minutes until the crust is brown. When browned, remove the pan from the oven but let the oven stay on.
Step 5: In a separate bowl, add the cream cheese to the white sugar. Use an electric mixer to combine until incorporated. Then, add in the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix well.
Step 6: Transfer the mixture over the baked crust and sprinkle the rest of the crust mixture on top.
Step 7: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for another 25 minutes.
Step 8: Remove from the oven and let it sit on a wire rack to cool for at least 5 minutes.
Step 9: Serve and enjoy!
