3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
For the cheesecake layer
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

For the shortbread layer: In a medium bowl, combine flour and brown sugar. Using an electric mixer, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans. Press mixture evenly into bottom of a greased 9x13" baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes; remove from oven, and cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
For the cheesecake layer: Place the cream cheese in the bowl, and beat at medium speed until smooth. Beat in sugar. Add milk and 2 teaspoons vanilla, and beat until combined. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the cooled shortbread layer. Bake for 15 minutes; remove from oven and cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
