Ingredients:

  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¾ cup finely chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • ¼ cup Vino Cotto by Montillo Italian Foods
  • 2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).
  • For the crust: Using a fork, mix together all the dry ingredients for the crust into a bowl. Add the melted butter and vino cotto. Thoroughly combine all ingredients.
  • Hand press dough evenly into an ungreased 13 by 9 by 2 inch pan. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned and firm to the touch.
  • For the filling: In a separate bowl, add all the filling ingredients and mix until the batter is smooth. Pour filling over the crust.
  • Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the surface is deep golden brown and feels springy to the touch. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick in the middle of the pan then immediately remove it. The toothpick should come out clean when the cheesecake bars are done.
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares. Yield: 35 bars
