Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Cheesecake Bars

1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
16 ounce cream cheese
14 ounce sweetened condensed milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine cracker crumbs, chopped pecans, sugar, and butter in a mixing bowl. Mix well, reserve 1/3 C. of mixture for topping (if desired), and press the remainder into a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake for 6 minutes, put on wire rack to cool. Beat cream cheese in a large bowl until fluffy. Gradually beat in condensed milk. Add eggs and beat until just combined. Stir in lemon juice. Carefully spoon mixture on top of the crust in pan. Take the remaining crumb mixture and sprinkle on top to cover (or make designs). Bake about 30-35 minutes (still at 325 degrees) or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 1 hour and then refrigerate. Cut into whatever size squares or bars you desire to serve.
