Regina's Cheesecake Dreams

My friend, Regina, has been making these delicious gems for like forever!  I absolutely LOVE them! They are super moist and literally melt in your mouth!  Regina's been very nice and shared her recipe with me.  They're actually quite easy to make.  Enjoy these pieces of heaven!
Ingredients:
-1/3 cup packed brown sugar
-1 cup flour
-1/2 cup walnut topping (the really finely chopped walnuts in the baking section)
-1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
-8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 large egg
-3 Tbs milk
-1 Tbs lemon juice
-1 tsp vanilla extract
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.  Grease an 8x8 inch baking pan.  Set aside.
In a bowl, mic the brown sugar, flour and walnuts.  Add the melted butter and mix until nice and crumbly.  Save 1/3 cup of the crumbly mixture.  Place the rest in the prepared pan.  Press it gently into the pan, on the bottom.  Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until edges are golden.
Meanwhile, beat the cream cheese and sugar in your mixer until smooth.  Add remaining ingredients. Pour over hot crust.  Sprinkle on top with the saved 1/3 cup of the crumbly mixture. Bake for 25 more minutes.
Remove from oven and place (in the pan) on wire rack.  Cool completely.  Cut into pieces and enjoy!
