1/3 cup finely chopped nuts
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
2 pkgs (8-oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 can (14-oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, nuts, sugar, and melted butter; mix well. Reserve 1/3 cup; set aside. Press the remaining mixture onto the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Bake at 325 minutes for 6 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy. Gradually beat in the sweetened condensed milk. Add the eggs and beat just until combined. Stir in the lemon juice. Spoon the mixture over the baked crust. Spoon the reserved crumb mixture over the top of the filling. Bake about 30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for an hour then store in refrigerator. Cut into 24 bars to serve.
